In this video, pancreatic disease specialists discuss the benefits and rare risks associated with EUS-FNA. The main benefit of EUS-FNA is that it is a relatively non-invasive procedure that provides a large amount of information and a specific diagnosis that has high sensitivity and high specificity. Patients and physicians should discuss the benefits and risks prior to the EUS-FNA procedure and determine what will benefit the patient the most.
