Vidacare of Shavano Park, Texas is touting results of three studies just presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology in Orlando, Florida that studied the benefits of using the company’s OnControl bone biopsy and aspiration device. The long and short of these studies is that the device is faster to use, less painful on the patient, and results in a significantly larger specimen size (see side image) than traditional manual corking.
Here’s a summary of results from Study 1:
124% faster procedure time for OnControl when compared to Manual Significantly lower needle insertion pain (2.6 vs 4.1 on a VAS scale of 0-10) Significantly larger core biopsy specimen with mean volume for OnControl at 36.8mm compared to 15.3mm for Manual Significantly larger core biopsy specimen with mean usable area for OnControl at 25.4mm compared to 11.9mm for Manual.
100% core biopsy sample core capture rate for OnControl compared to 67% for manual 83% faster procedure time for OnControl when compared to manual Significantly lower overall pain (20.9 vs 33.3 on a VAS scale of 0-100) Significantly larger core biopsy specimens with a mean volume for OnControl of 49.12mm compared to 10.76mm for manual.
109% faster procedure time for OnControl compared to Manual Significantly more OnControl patients were pain free 24 hours after the biopsy procedure; 67%
compared to 33% for Manual patients
Significantly larger core biopsy specimens with a mean volume for OnControl of 36.8mm compared
to 20.4mm for Manual.
