The huge bone marrow puncture model

The bone marrow puncture model conveys lay in a clear way information on a preliminary investigation, namely the bone marrow extraction. It shows the bone marrow collection at the pelvic bone and represents the femoral neck and thigh. On thigh gives insight into the bone by the periosteum (periosteum) to the bone marrow. Various medical conditions are displayed on the model such. As osteoporosis, cancer and metastases.

A bone marrow biopsy is used to assess blood formation and the diagnosis or propagation diagnosis of diseases of the bone marrow and the hematopoietic System.

The bone marrow puncture on the pelvic bone is carried out under local anesthesia and the bone marrow is drawn by syringe from the bone. The patient should then lie on your back for 30-40 minutes.

Leukemia (blood cancer) is a disease of the bone marrow. Leukemia occurs relatively infrequently as compared to other cancers. Thanks but modern therapies can cure the disease in most cases. The determination is made by a blood test to more accurately Einordung which leukemia variant is usually present is the removal of a bone marrow sample will be necessary.

Osteoporosis (brittle bones) is a metabolic disease of bone that leads to the result to frequent bone fractures. Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease in the elderly.

Bone metastases, these bone tumors are by far the most frequent occurring in adulthood, unfortunately means that diagnosis also that no healing is possible with most cancers.
