Revolutionary Design - Aspirate to Application
Marrow Cellution™ has been designed to alter the fluid dynamics of a conventional bone marrow aspiration in a way that maximizes stem and progenitor cell recovery while minimizing peripheral blood infiltration. Because fluid under force follows the path of least resistance, trocar needles with side ports aspirate primarily through the distal end of the cannula. This leads to excessive blood collection, requiring additional manipulation, i.e. centrifugation or chemical separation in a laboratory.
Marrow Cellution™ accesses aspirate flow collected exclusively laterally as the tip of the aspiration cannula is closed allowing marrow collection perpendicular to and around the channel created by the device. It incorporates technology to precisely reposition the retrieval cannula within the marrow space after each aspiration. These features achieve a clinicians' desire for a single entry point.
Fenestrated Trocar (Marrow Cellutions™)
Minimally Invasive Collection of Autologous Cancellous Graft Material
Harvesting intact cancellous bone cores without disrupting the highly-organized living tissue is superior to transplanting pieces of bone. Intact grafts maintain the micro-vascular network within the graft promoting bone callus formation/remodeling and do not exhibit extensive resorption ¹ ².
Using the Marrow Cellution™ Graft Delivery Syringe and the Marrow Cellution™ Bone Core Harvest Device, the clinician can create a combination graft of a vascularized intact bone core in the center of the graft surrounded by allogeneic, autologous or synthetic bone chips hydrated with cellular marrow aspirate.
How It Works
Both the Marrow Cellutions Aspiration and Percutaneous Bone Graft kits are designed to operate in a minimally invasive, single point of entry application.
Bone marrow aspirate (BMA) is an autologous biologic derived from a patient’s own bone marrow. BMA is high in hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which are known to be vital to biological processes such as the regeneration of tissue—including cartilage, muscle, marrow, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue—as well as bone formation ³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶.
