NCT03078452: Evaluating Effectiveness of Powered Drill Bone Marrow Biopsy
Evaluating Effectiveness of Powered Drill Bone Marrow Biopsy
Since the introduction of the Jamshidi needle in 1971, new advances in bone marrow sampling have not been seen. In 2007, a new battery-powered bone marrow biopsy system was developed. This technology, using a battery-powered drill to operate the needle accessing the posterior iliac bone, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is currently commercially available.
Few randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have compared the use of the battery-powered bone marrow biopsy system to the Jamshidi needle (the traditional manual) method of bone marrow sampling. This research study is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Jamshidi needle compared to the battery-powered bone marrow biopsy system.
100 participants will be enrolled in this study at Emory University
Device: Power drill
Device: Jamshidi needle
