This direct-access bone biopsy system provides an optional hard bone access element for traversing dense bone, in both 11G and 13G sizes.
As with all the Merit Bone Biopsy Systems, the Madison™ System contains the Preston™ Bone Biopsy Needle, designed for either incremental sampling for blastic lesions or with optional syringe aspiration.
Features & Benefits
The Madison™ Perforating Bone Biopsy System is a perforating, comprehensive system designed to traverse hard bone and reach deep-set or small cortical abnormalities. It is a popular choice for both axial and appendicular cases. Its features and benefits include:
- Control and precision while traversing dense bone
- Precise cannula placement while drilling to target small cortical lesions
- Unique perforating cannula and hard bone drilling technology
- Direct access, easy handling, and efficient hard bone access
Available in 11G in four lengths from 6.5cm to 15cm and 13G* in 9cm. The Madison™ Mini is available in 13G, 6 cm.
*The 13G Madison™ System features a removable handle on the introducer.
Using a direct approach, the introducer is delivered to the bone surface, rotating counterclockwise to reduce soft-tissue trauma. The introducer is then advanced, twisting alternately clockwise and counterclockwise, into the bone. Once anchored in the bone surface, the trocar-tip stylet may be exchanged for the drill, which locks together with the perforating cannula to traverse hard bone.
