of 'Endoscopic ultrasound-guided trucut biopsy'
Peroperative transduodenal biopsy of the pancreas.
Peroperative transduodenal biopsy of the pancreas was performed in 65 patients with the disposable Trucut needle. The technique described is simple, effective, and may reveal unsuspected malignancy. A histological diagnosis of malignancy is reliable but false negative diagnosis may arise because of failure to obtain representative samples.
