Safety of percutaneous ultrasound-guided biopsy of renal allografts in the cynomolgus monkey: results of 348 consecutive biopsies.

Abstract

The safety of a technique for ultrasound-guided biopsy of renal allografts was evaluated based on 348 consecutive procedures in cynomolgus monkeys. A spring-loaded biopsy device with an 18G tru-cut biopsy needle was used to biopsy renal allografts in 139 cynomolgus monkeys performed either on clinical indication (n = 95 animals) or as serial protocol… (More)
