However, the only way to know if an embryo is still viable is to thaw and implant it.

The storage facility was not staffed overnight Saturday.

DePompei said the hospital sent letters to all the affected patients on Tuesday morning, after verifying current addresses.

"It's devastating, it's absolutely devastating", said Patti DePompei, President of University Hospital MacDonald Women's Hospital and Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital.

Patti DePompei, president of UH MacDonald Women's Hospital and UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital, told NBC News this malfunction may have caused damage to numerous eggs and embryos - some of which have been stored for decades.

But at 5-5, the pressure appeared to get to the former world number one as she double-faulted to hand the initiative to Osaka. She is now healthy again, but skipped this year's Australian Open because she did not consider herself tournament ready.

The failure caused the temperature to rise, ultimately making the eggs and embryos at the facility lose their viability.

A long haul stockpiling tank containing fluid nitrogen at the University Hospitals Fertility Center in Cleveland encountered a clear hardware disappointment over the previous end of the week, enabling the temperature to end up hotter than it should. An American Society for Reproductive Medicine rep says nothing like this has ever happened at a USA fertility clinic. "We are working painstakingly to decide how we can best help them through the procedure", said DePompei.

'We are committed to getting answers and working with patients individually to address their concerns'.

"Some of the eggs and embryos that were stored date back decades", DePompei told WKYC.

"Right now, our patients come first".

The hospital has attempted to notify everyone who has a specimen stored in the tank, but are concerned that some patients may have moved or changed contact information given the length of time that some eggs and embryos have been stored.

After a lady experiences an egg solidifying process, the frozen eggs are put away in fluid nitrogen tanks in a cryogenic facility where they are regularly checked with video observation and alert frameworks.

Women have to fork up approximately $12,000 to $14,000 to undergo the procedure.

With more women deciding on a late motherhood, freezing eggs has become increasingly popular.

"Our hearts go out to the patients who have suffered this loss", Sean Tipton, chief policy officer at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ARSM) reportedly said.
