- Background. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is a well-established method for the diagnosis of solid pancreatic lesions. However, the diagnostic yield of EUS-FNA for pancreatic lesions varies at around 70-90%. Samples from EUS-FNA consist of cells and tissues that can be analyzed separately, and the results can be combined for a final diagnosis. Objectives. To investigate the effect of cytological and histological analysis of EUS-FNA samples on the final diagnosis, and identify factors that may affect the accuracy of the cytological, histological, and overall analysis. Materials and methods. A single-center prospective observational study was conducted at a tertiary university hospital from July 2018 to June 2019. Patients who underwent EUS-FNA for pancreatic solid lesions with a 22-gauge EUS-FNA needle were included in our study. Liquid-based cytological analysis of the speci-men and histological analysis of the whitish core were performed, and factors that affected the diagnostic accuracy of each analysis were evaluated. Results. In 63 EUS-FNA samples, the overall diagnostic accuracy was 87.3%, which was significantly higher than the cytological accuracy of 73.8% (p = 0.031) and the histological accuracy of 69.8% (p = 0.001). Factors that affected the results differed in each group: 1) cytological analysis: size, location, and approach method; 2) histological analysis: specimen weight; and 3) overall analysis: size, location, and approach method. Conclusions. Histologic evaluation of core material obtained from EUS-FNA improved diagnostic accuracy, and factors that affected each result were analyzed. Further studies with prospective randomized trials are recommended to support our data.
