The Hensler Bone Press (HBP) is a patented device which maximizes the collection and separation of autologous bone during fusion procedures. Our product quickly and efficiently separates bone from fluid during surgery, which yields a semi-dry graft-ready material for fusion procedures. The press head has been highly engineered and tested to maximize the proficient separation of autologous bone from blood.
The HBP employs a proven 2-step method, as to allow little to no interruption of the case for both apllications of use. This process of bone collection and separation for fusion cases has been simplified to allow the surgeon and/or assist to maintain efforts on the surgery, while producing a favorable and moldable graft for use as the surgeon desires, such as interbody or on-lay fusion. The application for ultrasonic tissue collection and seperation allows for the maximum amount of sterile tissue to be delivered to pathology, while simultaneously not interupting the case during full canister transfers between the 1st assist and the surgical tech.
Step 1 — Collection of the autologous bone from surgical site.
Step 2 — Press mechanism combined with surgical grade mesh to separate autologous bone from fluid.
After the press has been manually deployed down, simply tilt the container to suction away fluid leaving only semi-dry autologous bone or tissue. The same is true for the ultrasonic application. The bone has already been tested by a clinical pathologist after use of the press, which revealed no evidence of bone cell damage or death under light microscopy. See ACTUAL microscopic analysis of bone AFTER HBP use. Lastly, stage the bone or tissue for use as the surgeon deems appropriate.
This device allows for simultaneous operations. As collection of bone takes place, the press device can be utilized in parallel on the surgical table by the tech or nurse. This exchange process can occur as many times as the case necessitates.
