TO THE EDITOR: I considered the novel findings of Rabsztyn et al. (1) to be of interest. This study demonstrates that the elevation in total amylase sometimes observed in celiac disease is actually related to the presence of macroamylasemia (1). Pancreatic pathology is well described in celiac disease, with the spectrum varying from pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (2) to a more recently described association with recurrent pancreatitis (3). Recent reports have suggested that abdominal pain… 
23 Complications of Liver Biopsy
TLDR
Liver biopsy is the gold standard for grading and staging of liver disease which has been used for more than hundred years and 1-5% of patients require hospitalization for complications and approximately 60% of complications occur within the first 2 hours following the procedure, and 96% within thefirst 24 hours.

Endoscopic ultrasound guided liver biopsy: Recent evidence
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasound guided LB (EUS-LB) has evolved as an alternative method of tissue sampling that has proven to be safe and effective, with limited adverse events, and may also have a greater diagnostic yield of tissue.
Successful treatment of haemothorax following percutaneous liver biopsy using interventional radiology: importance of arterial anatomical variations
We report on a case of massive haemothorax following percutaneous liver biopsy (PLB) due to an injury of both the right posterior intercostal artery (RPIA) and the inferior right phrenic artery
Delayed bleeding after liver biopsy: a dreaded complication.
TLDR
The patient presented ten days after the initial liver biopsy, and was managed with prompt investigations for confirming the diagnosis, infusion of factor VIII and fresh frozen plasma, and early referral to the surgeon for consideration of surgical repair.
Complications of Liver Biopsy - Risk Factors, Management and Recommendations
TLDR
The role of liver biopsy (LB), the traditional gold standard for assessing liver disease, continues to evolve, but rational assessment of overall risk in LB is hampered by the wide variation in the indication and its outcome reported in the existing literature.
Life-Threatening Complications Following Percutaneous Ultrasound-Guided Renal Biopsy: a Rare Case Report
TLDR
An educational case of female having major bleeding complications after renal biopsy with unusual clinical courses and the need to remain the major complications in mind for physicians is presented.
Prolonged Pleural Effusion following Liver Biopsy in a 10-Year-Old Girl
TLDR
The case of a 10-year-old girl who had a liver biopsy and had a pleural effusion during the 20-day period she was treated with the chest tube, and the patient continued conservative gastroenterological treatment for liver cirrhosis.
Endoscopic ultrasound-guided liver biopsy
TLDR
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is gaining traction as an alternative method of biopsy for parenchymal disease, it offers a more targeted approach for focal lesions and can decrease sampling variability.
The positive color Doppler sign post biopsy: effectiveness of US-directed compression in achieving hemostasis
TLDR
Color Doppler US can detect bleeding post percutaneous liver and kidney biopsies and US-guided compression is effective in obliterating the color Dopplers signal and achieving appropriate hemostasis.
