Stereotactic needle biopsy, a standard of care for acquiring deep-seated pathology, has limitations and risks in some situations. We present an uncommon case with basal ganglia dematiaceous mycetoma. Due to the firm consistency of the lesion, the initial stereotactic needle biopsy failed to provide a diagnosis. In a second operation, transtubular excisional biopsy was successfully performed to remove the entire mycetoma. We reviewed recent case series of transtubular approaches to deep-seated brain lesions and suggest this method could be a rescue for a non-diagnostic stereotactic needle biopsy and even may be the approach of choice in some cases.

Stereotactic core needle breast biopsy is an accurate diagnostic technique to assess nonpalpable mammographic abnormalities.

J La State Med Soc 1996 Apr;148(4):167-70

Dept of Surgery, Ochsner Medical Institutions in New Orleans, USA.

The minimally invasive technique of stereotactic core needle breast biopsy threatens to replace surgical excisional biopsy as the preferred method to diagnose most mammographic abnormalities. The goal of this study is to evaluate the ability of stereotactic core needle breast biopsy to accurately assess suspicious nonpalpable masses and calcifications on mammography. A prospective protocol was initiated which called for stereotactic core needle breast biopsy instead of traditional excisional biopsy to assess suspicious calcifications and masses noted on mammography.

Objective: To evaluate three biopsy methods which are currently used in stereotactic breast biopsy.

Methods: A total of 361 cases of stereotactic breast biopsies were carried out since 2000, including 73 cases of true cut core needle biopsies (ST-CNB), 74 cases of vacuum assisted biopsies (ST-VAB) and 214 cases of excisional biopsies. After medium follow-up time of 18 months (6 to 66 months), the accuracy as well as the clinical benefits of the three stereotactic biopsy procedures were analyzed retrospectively. Read More

To investigate the value of stereotactic biopsy in the accurate diagnosis of lesions in the brain stem and deep brain. A total of 29 consecutive patients who underwent stereotactic biopsy of brainstem and deep brain lesions between May 2012 and January 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. The Cosman-Roberts-Wells (CRW) stereotactic frame was installed under local anesthesia. Read More

Introduction: Stereotactic biopsy is unquestionably regarded as the gold standard for histopathological diagnosis of surgically inaccessible tumors. Tissue samples can be obtained by minimally invasive technique. Histopathological examination opens the door to oncological treatment of patients. Read More
