The specimen size increased rapidly and linearly (P less than .001) with the number of needle passes, if the needle was angled between the passes into different directions in a fan-like fashion. However, if the needle was stroking repeatedly into the same channel, less and less tissue was detached per pass. The effect of the amplitude of needle passes… CONTINUE READING
