Bone marrow biopsies

Bone marrow is the spongy tissue and fluid which is inside some of the larger bones in the body. A biopsy involves the removal of a small amount of tissue and fluid from the bone marrow.

Therapeutic venesections

A therapeutic venesection is the removal of a volume of blood (usually 400mls) as a treatment for certain conditions of the blood.
