Case Report | White Paper

Dr. Neufeld from the Centers for Advanced Orthopedics (CAO) in Falls Church, Virginia/USA reports a case that involves a patient with end stage 1st MTP joint arthritis who underwent a fusion procedure. The Marrow Cellution™ kit was used to provide bone marrow aspirate AND high quality bone autograft dowels to the fusion site.

A successful outcome was facilitated in only 6 weeks with the use of autogenic bone marrow aspiration and cancellous iliac crest bone autograft. No morbidities at the donor site or complications at the fusion site were reported.

The Marrow Cellution™ System is designed to minimize and eliminate the restrictive limitations associated with “point of care” processing systems which employ inefficient traditional aspiration trocar technology and are regulated as drugs “Advanced Therapies Medicinal Products (ATMP)”.  Marrow Cellution™ is a minimally invasive bone/cell enriched autograft access and retrieval system, which does not require additional manipulation or processing, it never leaves the sterile field and provides rich autograft without associated morbidity.
