RIA 2 System (Reamer Irrigator Aspirator)
RIA 2 is intended for the clearing and sizing of the medullary canal, the harvesting of autograft, and the debridement of necrotic and infected tissues from the medullary canal.
- Designed for simplified assembly
- For femur and tibia
- More graft and lower pain scores1
Features & Benefits
MORE GRAFT AND LOWER PAIN SCORES1
- Up to 90 cc of graft1 with an incision size as small as 2 cm have been reported2
- Lower total complication rate: 6.0% versus 19.4% from iliac crest bone graft (ICBG) harvesting3
- Greater level of gene expression associated with vascular, skeletal, and hematopoietic tissue versus ICBG4
- 73% lower donor site mean pain score than ICBG1
LOWER EMBOLIZATION, LOWER REAMING RISK, AND EFFECTIVE TISSUE DEBRIDEMENT COMPARED TO STANDARD REAMER
- Effective method for removal of infected bone tissue5
- Reaming with irrigation and aspiration for reduced heterotopic ossification, fat embolization, and thermal necrosis3,6-9
EXCHANGEABLE REAMER HEADERS FOR FEMUR AND TIBIA
- Efficient reaming with sharp front-cutting reamer heads1
- Spline drive for exchangeable head and power transmission
- Tang locking design for secured connection during reaming
- Available from 10 mm to 18 mm in 0.5 mm increments for reaming the femur and tibia

RIA 2 is intended for use in adults and adolescents (12 -21 years)
- To clear the medullary canal of the bone marrow and debris
- To effectively size the medullary canal for the acceptance of an intramedullary implant or prosthesis
- To harvest morselized autogenous bone and bone marrow for any surgical procedures requiring bone graft to facilitate fusion and/or fill bone defects
- To remove infected and necrotic bone and tissue from the medullary canal in the treatment of osteomyelitis
