New Publications Highlight LifeNet Health's Life Saving Work in Neurosurgery
Date:6/16/2010

ham and his colleagues describe three successful cases of re-implantation of disinfected cranial bone flaps and conclude: "OsteoCleanseTM was shown to be effective at salvaging otherwise non-implantable autografts based on clinical outcomes in a pilot study involving three cases: a post-surgical infection, a transport failure, and an immune compromised patient. Current salvage options for contaminated or at-risk autografts can be expanded to include OsteoCleanseTM."

A second publication, "The Bone Flap Solution" by Karen Ecarius and Susan Malionek from the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, Va., was presented at the 2010 Annual AORN (Association of periOperative Room Nurses) meeting in Denver, Colorado, in March.   Regarding the cranial bone flap cleaning process, they list the following benefits:

  • Reduced perioperative infections rates.
  • Flap provides exact anatomical fit to the patient's defect and is cosmetically pleasing.
  • Facilities do not need to maintain a tissue banking program.
  • Cost savings associated with avoidance of extended recovery periods, post operative complications, and synthetic implants.

Since introducing Allowash® technology in 1995, LifeNet Health has distributed more than 2.4 million allograft bio-implants without incidence of disease transmission.  Now, through the OsteoCleanse™ autograft cleaning service, LifeNet Health is pleased to apply this same technology to provide solutions in handling autograft tissues and continuing to serve their mission of saving lives and restoring health.

LifeNet Health helps save lives and restore health for thousands of patients each year. W
