Nutritional anaemias, Haematological Malignancies and Immune Thrombocytopenia can be readily diagnosed by bone marrow aspiration alone.
Key Words: Bone marrow aspirate, Trephine Biopsy, Diagnostic usefulness.INTRODUCTION
Bone marrow examination is a useful and cost effective diagnostic procedure in haematological practice for the diagnosis of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic haematological diseases.
All patients who underwent simultaneous bone marrow aspiration and trephine biopsy (n=443) were included in this study.
Usually, the donor's bone marrow has to match fully to cure patients such as Dixit.
But doctors succeeded to save him with what in medical terms is called a halfmatched bone marrow transplant, practiced abroad but not in India.
" If a ' full match' is not found, the bone marrow can be toxic for the recipient.
We treated him twice but the results were not encouraging, so we thought of going in for a half- matched bone marrow transplant," Dr Bhurani said.
This is a retrospective study based on 40 bone marrow cases performed at our affiliated Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center Hospital in Houston from October 2009 to March 2010.
All 40 patients in this study had bone marrow procedure performed with local anesthesia only (about 10 mL of Lidocaine 1% injection on the periosteal surface before aspiration).
A retrospective, morphologic review and an electronic medical-record review were performed for the 40 bone marrow cases in this study.
Bone marrow biopsies obtained by the single-needle technique were similar in length (mean, 0.99 cm) to biopsies obtained by the 2-needle technique (mean, 1.17 cm).
