Abstract: Conventional endoscopic sonography has allowed precise diagnostics without disturbances, and miniprobes can be easily introduced through the biopsy channel of the endoscope. Miniprobe endoscopic sonography has many benefits compared with conventional endoscopic sonography. Although there are well-known indications for miniprobe endoscopic sonography in endoscopic digestive tract assessment, there is still a need for this method to be widely spread among physicians and commonly used by most endoscopists. The aim of this series was to describe a multicenter retrospective experience with 1451 procedures using miniprobes, presenting examples and the applicability and usefulness of this technology in the daily activities of an endoscopy department.
