Bone marrow aspirate (BMA) is an alternative to traditionally harvested iliac crest without the associated complications or morbidity.1 Surgeons can easily aspirate BMA from several anatomical locations throughout the body including iliac crest, vertebral body or calcaneus. The Imbibe bone marrow aspiration needles provide you a minimally invasive way to harvest bone marrow. These needles come with either sharp beveled or trocar stylets, which are color coded to distinguish each needle.
