Particular attention has been given to clinical significance (level of evidence and the more practical grade of recommendation” Dietrich et al (2016).
“EFSUMB has accessed a wealth of experience from their expert contributors, who present the subject matter as concretely as possible and offer vivid descriptions of practical techniques. A challenge in the process has been to both unify and respect the differences (national and even regional) often existing in the varied methods of performing INVUS procedures. Particular attention has been given to clinical significance (level of evidence and the more practical grade of recommendation).
The guidelines were discussed during an intensive two-day meet- ing, attended by all the experts.
The guidelines consist of six main parts:
1. Part I: General aspects
2. Part II: Abdominal diagnostic procedures
3. Part III: Abdominal treatment procedures using the transcutaneous approach
4. Part IV: EUS-guided interventions: General aspects and EUS-guided sampling
5. Part V: EUS-guided therapeutic interventions
6. Part VI: Ultrasound-guided vascular interventions”
