Fine-needle aspiration of adrenal lesions: A 20-year single institution experience with comparison of percutaneous and endoscopic ultrasound guided approaches.

Historically, sampling of adrenal lesions has been performed by percutaneous image-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy. Endoscopic ultrasound guided (EUS)-FNA of the adrenals was first employed...

Endoscopic ultrasound versus endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography-guided biliary drainage for primary decompression of malignant biliary obstruction: protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.

Current evidence supporting the utility of endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD) as a first-line treatment option for malignant biliary obstruction (MBO) is limited. We plan to provid...

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided transmural approach versus ERCP-guided transpapillary approach for primary decompression of malignant biliary obstruction: a meta-analysis.

 Primary decompression in patients with malignant biliary obstruction can be achieved via endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with transpapillary stenting, or, more recently, via t...

Features of chronic pancreatitis by endoscopic ultrasound influence the diagnostic accuracy of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration of small pancreatic lesions.

In chronic pancreatitis (CP) patients, diagnosis of small pancreatic lesions by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is challenging. Thus, the aim of our study was to investig...

Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Radiofrequency Ablation: A New Therapeutic Approach for Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation (EUS-RFA) is rapidly emerging as feasible therapy for patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in selected cases, as a result of its ...

Risk Factors of Medistinal Metastasis in Endoscopic Staging of Lung Cancer

The purpose of this study is to investigate risk factors for mediastinal lymph node metastasis in potentially operable non-small cell lung cancer in order to find indications for endoscopi...

Evaluation of Diagnostic Yield of EUS-Guided Tissue Sampling

All patients will receive standard medical care and no experimental interventions will be performed. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is a well-established pro...

Assessment of Surgical sTaging vs Endoscopic Ultrasound in Lung Cancer: a Randomized Clinical Trial (ASTER Study)

Lung cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers and has a very high mortality. Both treatment and prognosis depend on the staging. Surgical staging of the mediastinum mainly by means of a...

Indications and Interest of US-guided Synovial Biopsies Performed in Clinical Practice

Synovial biopsies are now routinely performed both in research and in clinical practice. The developments of ultrasound (US) and of US-guided needle biopsies devices have facilitated their...

Comparison of Three Tissue Acquiring Techniques During EUS Guided Biopsies of Solid Pancreatic Tumors.

The study's aim is to prospectively compare three different tissue acquisition techniques during EUS guided pancreatic solid lesions biopsies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Conducting a fine needle biopsy with the aid of ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASONOGRAPHY.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).

Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.

Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
