Technical aspects of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided sampling in gastroenterology: European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Technical Guideline

J-M. Dumonceau, P.H. Deprez & M. Polkowski et al.

ESGE is proud to announce the Technical Guideline on EUS-guided sampling in gastroenterology scheduled to be published in the October issue of “Endoscopy”. This Guideline – developed by a panel of 20 experts from 12 countries – focuses on technical aspects of EUS-guided sampling, such as the choice of EUS needle, optimal sampling technique, and specimen handling / processing. This is an update to the previous ESGE Guideline on this topic published in 2012, and is based on recent evidence from 40 randomized clinical trials, several meta-analyses, and numerous other studies. The target audience for this Guideline is endoscopists who perform EUS-guided sampling. The Technical Guideline is a sister publication to the ESGE Clinical Guideline on indications and clinical impact of EUS-guided sampling published in July this year.
