So you need a bone marrow biopsy, and you're nervous because you've heard just how painful it can be. In addition to the pain, you probably feel anxious about the biopsy results.
While we can’t control the results of your test, we can improve your biopsy experience with a faster, more effective, less painful way 1234 of biopsying the bone marrow. It’s called the ARROW® OnControl® Powered Bone Marrow Biopsy System, and patients biopsied with this system report significantly less patient pain during and after the procedure, as compared to manual bone marrow biopsy procedures. And it’s faster and more effective too!1234 The procedure time is less than half of manual bone marrow procedures,12 and yields larger specimens that provide your doctor with more usable area for diagnosis. 1
55% faster procedure time than manual procedures1234**
Patients report significantly less pain during the procedure, and 66% of patients said they felt little to no pain 24 hours after the procedure!124**
Your doctor will receive a larger, higher quality specimen to assist in making your diagnosis1234**
My experience with the ARROW® OnControl® Powered Bone Marrow Biopsy System was outstanding, and I think it’s a huge step forward for clinicians and patients when compared to manual needles! It was easy to use, my patient had a quick and painless procedure, and the core biopsy sample we got was excellent – in fact, our pathologist called it the best he’d ever seen!
