The BONE TOOL™ allows the surgeon to harvest several cores of cancellous bone and a substantial quantity of marrow along with small fragments of bone generated during the harvest process. The vacuum ensures that the structural integrity of the cancellous core is substantially maintained while facilitating its removal from the ilium.
Once the harvest is complete, the marrow elements are mixed with the harvested cancellous cores. This mixture of cancellous bone and bone marrow is then implanted into the host site. The syringe action of the plunger/bone tamp further allow the surgeon to draw additional marrow from the harvest site.
