The CER-EXT has a profile that makes it ideal for use in extremity bones. The k-wire is used with standard operating room drills, both manual and power.
The enhanced features of the tip of the stylet and cannula facilitate penetrating harder cortical bone including the distal tibia. Its shorter length makes it ergonomically friendly for working in extremity locations and it incorporates patented technology that limits peripheral blood dilution and eliminates the need for centrifugation.
This device is often used in conjunction with the CER-BN-116 bone dowel harvesting device and bone graft granules. Combining marrow aspirate with autogenous bone and a graft extender allows clinicians to fill boney defects using the patients own cells as the engine for bone healing. The combination of all three provide cells, signals and a scaffold; the building blocks for repairing bone.
Centrifugation systems typically required 20 minutes or more of spin time during the surgical procedure, not to mention the additional personnel (perfusion) and support time needed for preparation and cleanup of the equipment.
Centrifugation systems require passing the BMA off the sterile field for processing and back on for implantation. CER-EXT eliminates the additional steps where infection concerns must be managed.
Centrifugation systems typically discard 80% of the aspirate due to the high levels of peripheral blood. Worse, significant numbers of the desired cells (approx. 40%) are discarded because as these cells increase in density prior to division, they are processed into the undesired red cell centrifuge component and thus discarded, substantially limiting the regenerative potential of the resulting sample.
Centrifugation systems require at least 10% dilution by volume for the addition of anti-coagulant to allow the sample to separate, and also require another 10% dilution in the form of a neutralizing agent such as thrombin and calcium chloride in order for the marrow to clot in the graft.
Protocols require the marrow to be filtered prior to centrifugation. Cells bound within a cell aggregate can be delivered to the patient when mixed with graft material or injected. This is not the case when aggregates are filtered out prior to centrifugation. Filtering takes additional time, but more importantly, filtering reduces regenerative potential.
Delivers a better regenerative solution (more stem cells) at a reduced cost compared to the industry leading centrifugation solutions.
