Small Biopsy System for Superficial Bones

The lightweight, small bone biopsy system for use with small superficial bones.

System Components

As with all the Merit Bone Biopsy Systems, the Madison? Mini System contains the Preston? Bone Biopsy Needle, designed for either incremental sampling for blastic lesions or with optional syringe aspiration.

  • Trocar-tip stylet/perforating-tip cannula introducer with removable handle
  • Clockwise trephine-tip biopsy needle
  • Ejector pin
Madison Mini Bone Biopsy Kit

The Madison? Mini Bone Biopsy System is a direct-access 13G system that operates without a drill but features a perforating cannula with a removable handle. This minimizes extra weight and is extremely useful for small rounded bones with little soft-tissue surroundings. Its features and benefits include:

  • Direct 13G access to small, superficial bones
  • Tactile control and small gauge to allow for accurate targeting of small lesions
  • Removable handle to minimize exterior weight
  • Optimized sample for sclerotic and blastic lesions

Introduction Method

Using a direct approach, the Madison? Mini System’s introducer is delivered to the bone surface, rotating counterclockwise to reduce soft tissue trauma. The introducer is then anchored in bone and advanced clockwise. The screw-lock handle of the introducer may then be removed entirely to minimize weight before inserting biopsy needle.
