Harrington rod: make & model #?

Started by 100000477801195... on 06/11/2014 7:58am

I need to find out the model # for the Harrington Rod in my spine. It was inserted in 1984, at a hospital that has since between absorbed by a large conglomerate. My doctor has passed away. I'm looking into getting my record if it exists, but it probably doesn't have that technical info.

This is for a brain MRI. The MRI folks will refuse to do it if I can't provide the right make & model #. They say the machine uses a very powerful magnet.

I think my best bet is to figure out what model(s) was being used in 1984. I don't see a manufacturer listed, just suppliers. Any ideas?

Looks like the MRI folks will accommodate me after all. I don't know how to delete my question, but it's been resolved.
