19-249 - Benign Liver Optimal Core Study (Tissue Acquisition Comparison in Benign Liver Disease)Status: open
B.L.O.C.S. (BLOCS - Benign Liver Optimal Core Study) Comparison of 2 techniques using EUS guided Liver biopsies via 19g CORE biopsy needle to Obtain Optimal Core Liver Biopsies in Benign Disease
Technique comparison for liver biopsy
The primary purpose of this prospective, randomized, multicenter study is to evaluate and compare the amount and quality of tissue samples yielded in a liver biopsy comparing 2 different techniques of EUS guided CORE liver biopsy for benign disease. The two techniques: "modified Wet suction" and "Slow pull" technique of collecting tissue from a liver biopsy via Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS).
