Drug-eluting prostate biopsy needle

Prostate biopsy needle with a polymer coating that contains a combination of antibiotics (amikacin and ciprofloxacin) to extend the protection spectrum and act precisely where infections start. Drug-eluting allows antibiotics to be delivered and eliminate local intestinal bacteria. DEBN (drug-eluting biopsy needle) is a novel strategy for antimicrobial prophylaxis and may reduce the rate of infectious complications related to prostate biopsy by 50%.
