Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration Using a 22 vs 25-Gauge Needle

The goal of this clinical research study is to compare the effectiveness of a smaller, 25-gauge needle when used in an endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBU...

Incision and Drainage Versus Needle Aspiration in Soft Tissue Abscesses

The incidence of skin and soft tissue infections has increased dramatically over the last decade, in part due to increased prevalence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphyloco...

Evaluation of a New EUS Guided Biopsy Needle (SharkCore) Comparing to Standard EUS Needle (ProCore)

Diagnosis of lesions of pancreas, the upper gastrointestinal tract, as well as adjacent structures, such as lymph nodes, is still showing advancements especially with the increased use of ...

EUS-guided Fine Needle Aspiration (EUS-FNA) Versus EUS-guided Fine Needle Biopsy (EUS-FNB) for Diagnosis of Subepithelial Tumors

Background: Preoperative pathologic diagnosis of subepithelial tumor (SET) can improve clinical decision making. Although EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) is currently considered th...

Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Fine Needle Biopsy (EUS-FNB-SC) Using a Novel Fork Needle
