Abstract

As the first step of UCB banking, UCB collection has an important role in banking procedures. The aim of this study was to reveal the current status of UCB collection and discuss the management of the UCB bank. We conducted a questionnaire survey at medical centers collecting UCB, followed by semi-structured interviews with some respondents. Out of 38 institutes, 11 respondents (28.9%) thought that collection of UCB in addition to their routine medical services puts a burden on physicians. The obstetricians involved in the UCB collection are generally willing to participate in the procedure under current circumstances at medical institutes.
