Research letter

Reply: “Percutaneously guided or ultrasound-guided splenic punctures are safe procedures with a high diagnostic performance”

817-818

Gabriel Mosquera-Klinger, Carlos de la Serna,

We appreciate the interest shown in our article “Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration for splenomegaly and focal splenic lesion: is it safe, effective and necessary?”, as well as the academic discussion raised by gastroenterology-ultrasound experts in the letter to the editor. In the discussion of our article, we mention that EUS-FNA is necessary and/or the first option in splenomegaly and/or small focal splenic lesions where percutaneous biopsy are limited, when difficulty accessing the focal splenic lesions, in obese patients and in those with ascites, recent abdominal surgery or a poor acoustic window.
