Keywords Fine needle aspiration; Fine needle biopsy; Endoscopic ultrasound; Needle performance; Diagnostic yield; Diagnostic accuracy
Core Tip Endoscopic ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) is the gold standard for sampling solid pancreatic masses, but the small amount of tissue collected and the need of on site evaluation to maximize the diagnostic yield are some disadvantages. New Fine Needle Biopsy (FNB) needles, with high safety profile and satisfying diagnostic accuracy even in absence of on site evaluation, could overcome FNA limitations. However, FNB had not yet showed a clear diagnostic superiority. Thus, in order to choose the needle better adapting to each scenario, it’s important to know the technical aspects of FNA and FNB, the different sampling techniques, the types of needle available and their diagnostic performance.
