Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is an accurate method for cytological confirmation of pancreatic malignancy, but peritoneal dissemination caused by EUS-FNA could be a matter of concern because it may lead to poorer prognosis. Our aim was to estimate the risk of peritoneal carcinomatosis by EUS-FNA for pancreatic cancer. Two hundred and seventeen patients with cytopathologically proven pancreatic cancer in a tertiary referral center were retrospectively reviewed… CONTINUE READING
