What you need to know about Bone Marrow Aspiration in Tel Aviv

Bone marrow aspiration is a procedure that involves taking a sample of the fluid and cells from inside the bone marrow through a needle. It is used to examine bone marrow - the spongy tissue that is present inside some of the larger bones, such as the hips, ribs, and breastbone. The bone marrow produces red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. 

Bone marrow aspiration can give detailed information about the condition of your bone marrow and blood cells. Your doctor may suggest you undergo bone marrow aspiration to:

  • Diagnose a condition or disease that involves the bone marrow or blood cells

  • Check metabolism and iron levels

  • Determine the progression or stage of a disease

  • Monitor treatment of a disease

  • Investigate a fever that has an unknown cause.

Bone marrow aspiration can also be used for, including:

  • Anemia

  • Bone marrow diseases, such as myelodysplastic syndrome and myelofibrosis

  • Bone marrow or blood cancer, such as leukemia or Lymphoma

  • Blood cell conditions, such as polycythemia vera or leukopenia

  • Infection, particularly chronic conditions such as tuberculosis

  • Hemochromatosis

  • Storage diseases, such as Gaucher’s disease or amyloidosis.

Typically, bone marrow aspiration is performed at the same time with a bone marrow biopsy. A bone marrow biopsy involves taking a sample of the solid portion of the bone marrow, instead of the fluid portion.

What's the Recovery Time?

You may feel slight pain for around a week following the bone marrow aspiration, but you may be able to return to your normal activity as soon as you feel up to it. Generally, most people can return to work and resume their normal activities within 1-2 days after the procedure.

What's the Success Rate?

Studies have shown that bone marrow aspiration is a safe and useful procedure. While the procedure is very safe, it does carry some risk. The possible risks and side effects are:

  • Excessive bleeding, especially in people who have low numbers of platelets.

  • Infection, particularly in people with a weakened immune system.

  • Long-lasting discomfort

  • Allergic reaction to anesthesia.

If you experience any of the condition below, contact your doctor immediately:

  • A persistent fever

  • Bleeding that soaks through the bandage

  • Bleeding that does not stop with direct pressure

  • Worsening discomfort or pain

  • Increasing redness and swelling at the procedure site
