Cook Medical Chooses Interventional Radiology Meeting To Showcase New Biopsy Needle Products

In short

Cook Medical introduced two bone biopsy products, the Osteo-Site® Ratchet™ and the Osteo-Site® coaxial bone biopsy needle set, at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s (SIR) 37th Annual Scientific Meeting in San Francisco last week.

According to the company, the launch of these new devices further amplifies Cook’s full line of bone biopsy needles while emphasising Cook’s commitment to interventional radiology by meeting the diverse procedural needs of this medical specialty.

Background

Osteo-Site Ratchet: The Osteo-Site Ratchet, a bone biopsy and infusion needle set, is one of the newest entrants in Cook Medical’s full line of ultrasharp Osteo-Site needles. The ratchet-style 360-degree unidirectional drilling action and spade tip design allows manual drilling into hard bone without loss of pressure or control.

Osteo-Site Coaxial Bone Biopsy Needle Set: The Osteo-Site Coaxial Bone Biopsy Needle Set features a 14 and 16 gauge biopsy cannula, which includes a trephine tip to allow coaxial biopsy. The needle set is compatible with any standard Osteo-Site™ outer cannula size (11 or 13 gauge).

Cook Medical has a vast array of bone access, biopsy and special purpose needles. According to the company these ultrasharp needles are specifically designed to penetrate the bone without causing undue trauma.

Company comments

“As a company, Cook remains committed to innovating devices that streamline procedures for interventional radiologists,” said Dan Sirota, vice president and global leader of Cook Medical’s Interventional Radiology and Critical Care divisions. “We’re pleased to introduce these products at SIR to help the interventional radiology community expand treatment options and improve patients’ lives every day.”
