Abstract

The overall diagnostic accuracy of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) for subepithelial lesions (SELs) is suboptimal. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy, defined as the proportion of correct diagnoses, obtained using the EUS-guided fine-needle tissue acquisition (FNTA) sampling technique performed with the newly developed forward-viewing EUS scope (FV-EUS).
