Hensler Surgical Technologies has obtained CE mark for its Hensler Bone Press (HBP) for harvesting autologous material for use in bone fusion surgery.

With a clinically proven and patented two-step technique, the HBP can harvest high speed drilled autologous material during bony decompressions, including laminectomies, vertebral corpectomies, orthopaedic and foot and ankle surgical procedures.

Hensler Surgical noted that this includes posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF), transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF), anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) and posterior cervical fusion (PCF). It can also be used for vertebral partial/full corpectomies, scoliotic deformity, in-situ-fusions, orthopaedic non-unions and foot and ankle surgeries, but it is not limited to these procedures.

Made to be a greater yield harvesting device with (2) 80cc chambers, the HBP is disposable and user friendly and is a vital resource for surgeons who intend to use the patients’ own autologous material for fusion cases.

Hensler Surgical CEO and inventor Sean Hensler said: “Harvesting drilled graft material is an arduous but necessary undertaking to improve fusion outcomes in a wide array of surgical procedures.

“We are proud to offer a device that procures this graft material quickly, allowing for the procurement and processing of this critical and valuable autologous resource into a moldable and malleable graft for use in fusion surgeries.

“Our universal device excels at high yield graft recovery designed to flow seamlessly in the operating room setting for all staff that uses it.”

The company noted that a patient’s own bone is established to be the gold standard for bone grafting fusion cases.

Hensler Surgical launched the HBP in the market in 2012. It is currently being used for surgery in the US and in select foreign countries not observing the CE mark.

Manufactured in the US, the HBP is available to hospitals, ambulatory care centres and stand-alone facilities across the global surgical healthcare market.
