Features & Benefits
Using guided access originally inspired by the Seldinger technique, the Kensington Bone Biopsy System is the original coaxial system. With a smooth, tapered access needle placed directly over a 20G wire through the line of anesthesia, this choice assists in creating a less traumatic pathway through soft tissues and adjacent structures. At the same time, the system’s guided approach & blunt access facilitates the bone biopsy.
A – Guide wire
B – Needle
C – Hollow stylet/tapered-tip cannula introducer
D – Clockwise trephine-tip biopsy needle
E – Ejector pin
Inspired by the Seldinger technique, the guide wire is positioned in the soft tissue via the needle. Gently dilating the soft tissue, the introducer is delivered over the guide wire to the bone surface. The bone is then accessed and sampled with the biopsy needle.
If crossing dense cortex is required, a Preston™ Hard Bone Introducer (supplied as a separate accessory) may be additionally used after placing introducer needle.
