For patients with leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma and other blood-borne cancers, a bone marrow biopsy and/or bone aspiration is one of the most dreaded aspects of their diagnosis and treatment plan.4 The Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System is changing that.
The Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System provides many benefits to both patients and clinicians.1 Your clinician has made a commitment to provide you with the best available treatment for bone marrow examinations, whether it's a bone marrow biopsy, bone aspiration or bone lesion biopsy. You can discuss with your provider whether the Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System is appropriate for you.
“With your [Arrow® OnControl®] device, it was over quickly, and afterward, I noticed I was not as sore as the ones before. The bone marrow aspiration is the worst part of my treatment…Your system is definitely better.”
– Ryan, leukemia patient
The system is designed to provide the patient with the following benefits:
