OBJECTIVES Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided Trucut biopsy (TCB) enables acquisition of tissue cores for histological assessment. Because of the rigid needle and the spring mechanism, tissue acquisition can be difficult from regions that require sharp angulation of the echoendoscope. Fine needle aspiration with high suction (FNAHS) has been proposed as a method to obtain histological tissue cores while affording the flexibility to obtain specimens even with extreme endoscope angulation.
