Bone Marrow Biopsy and Aspiration are essential for some hematological diseases. The Bone Marrow Aspiration has been developed in 1935 by W. Dameshek, while only in the year 1958 (McFarland W., Dameshek W.), and later improved in 1971 (K. Jamshidi), a needle was introduced in the market which made the bone marrow biopsy easier: Since then a great use of this technique started. The bone marrow biopsy needle has been improved by a further device invented Dr Vito Burgio in 1992.
Bone marrow aspiration needle
Whistle tip needle. Sliding screw depth control device with millimetric scale. Anatomic handle for fi ngers position. Removable stylet with whistle point perfectly coupled at the cannula tip.
Bone marrow aspiration device (ST) and bone marrow explanation device (STE). Non-pyrogenic. Single use. Remove the needle protection and set the cannula lenght by turning the ring. Needle lenght scale is shown in milimeters. Check stylet mobility unscrewing and lifting a cap and then screw it back in housing. Grip the needle and place it on patient's sternum or iliac chest.
