Abstract

A newly developed forward-viewing linear echoendoscope (FV-EUS) has recently become available. To date, however, only scanty data on the performance of the FV-EUS scope for fine-needle aspiration (FNA) of lesions throughout the gastrointestinal (GI) tract are available. This study aimed to evaluate the technical performance of the FV-EUS scope for FNA of solid and cystic lesions located throughout the GI tract in a large cohort of patients referred to a tertiary care center.
