Abstract

Needle biopsy of submucosal lesions is an important addition to the diagnostic capabilities of gastrointestinal endoscopy. A series of 22 cases is described employing a guillotine needle to diagnose submucosal lesions, 4 of which were infiltrating adjacent carcinomas. The specimens obtained were sufficient for firm histological diagnosis in 20 cases. There were no complications apart from minor bleeding in 1 case.
