The T-handle introducer needle can be inserted by mallet, by hand or using a drill.
The optional k-wire stylet replaces the standard stylet when using a drill to advance the introducer cannula. The k-wire stylet on the flex cannula is meant to allow for powered advancement by a drill.
The flex cannula fits coaxially through the introducer handle. The greater geographic access of the cannula affords a clinician the ability to sample from a larger geographic area of the bone, limiting the need for additional punctures of the cortical wall that would be required to access the same location using a straight cannula.
This device can be used in conjunction with the CER-BN-84 bone dowel harvesting device and bone graft material. Combining marrow aspirate with autogenous bone and a graft extender allows clinicians to fill boney defects using the patient’s 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.
Minimize O/R Time
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.
Minimize Sterility Challenges
Centrifugation systems require passing the BMA off the sterile field for processing and back on for implantation. CER-FLEX eliminates the additional steps where infection concerns must be managed.
Minimize Sample Waste
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.
Minimize Use of Anti-Coagulants
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.
Eliminate the Need to Filter
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.
Reduce the Cost of Utilizing Biologics
Delivers a better regenerative solution (more stem cells) at a reduced cost compared to the industry leading centrifugation solutions.
