Methods and materials

A retrospective study of Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (FNAB) technique was performed in 49 patients of our center (Hospital Vall d'Hebron of Barcelona), obtaining a total of 52 samples over a two-year period (February 2016 to February 2018). In 3 of the patients the technique was performed in 2 different locations.


Two ultrasound Systems were used: Siemens Acuson S2000 and Esaote MyLab Twice and 20G Hepashot needles (Fig. 7)


The different reasons for performing FNAB in these patients were:


● Small injuries

● Injuries in hard-to-reach locations

● Injuries near vital structures.

● Prior realization of non-diagnostic FNAB


A frequency analysis carried out using the following variables:


● Baseline characteristics of the patient (sex and age).

● Anatomical location of the lesion.

● Size of the lesion (measured in millimeters).

● Diagnostic suspicion (in the case of primary lesions) or nature of the primary lesions (in the case of suspected implantation or dissemination).

● Etiological diagnosis of the lesions.

● Diagnostic efficacy of the technique by analyzing the results of pathological anatomy (sample sufficient for diagnosis or not).

● Immediate or late complications secondary to the performance of the technique.
