Abstract

Fine needle aspiration biopsy guided by ultrasonography was performed in 39 patients with pancreatic cancer to evaluate the value of the technique for establishing a proved histologic diagnosis. Aspirated material suitable for cytologic evaluation of smear preparation was obtained from 33 patients (84.6%). Among the 33 patients, cytologic diagnosis of pancreatic cancer was possible in 28 patients (84.9%). There was mild abdominal pain only in one patient (2.6%). In conclusion, percutaneous fine needle aspiration biopsy guided by ultrasonography proved to be a safe and useful method for histologic diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
