OnControl makes bone biopsies “significantly easier”

Ashutosh Rao (Atlanta, USA) talks to Interventional News at SIR 2019 about the OnControl device. Before switching to OnControl, Rao explains, “we did not realise how easy bone biopsies could be”.

Rao notes that sometimes bone lesions are not on the proximal side of the bone and that the OnControl device, with its outer cannula, allows those using it to drill through the front cortex and “get to difficult lesions we may not have otherwise been able to get to.”

He also talks about how it has transformed his practice for both bone biopsies and bone marrow biopsies and how the patients do not feel “all the pushing and pulling” you would normally get from manual pressure.
