What device for bone biopsies?

I was curious as to which device surgeons are using to obtain a bone biopsy sample? Is it being done just by using a standard Jamshidi needle? Do surgeons find it difficult to obtain an adequate sample?

I donít think there is a device for bone biopsies. I believe it is performed by inserting a closed needle to the bone to be able to extract the bone marrow needed for the biopsy. This is a safer procedure than having a device implanted under your skin. Many infections are noted through these implants which lead to injuries and lawsuits.

There are two methods in bone biopsy, one involves cutting through the skin to directly access the bone. This is a process known as an open biopsy and is usually done with the patient under local or complete anesthesia. The other type is the needle biopsy which is conducted by inserting a thick needle through the skin and body tissue and into the bone. For more information, you can check www.depuyhiprecallcenter.com
