Endoscopic ultrasound-guided (EUS) biopsy is now an established method for acquisition of cytohistological specimens. Some other procedures can be performed successfully in most instances (e.g., celiac plexus block, pseudocystic drainage), and some are being performed but need further refinement or validation (e.g., pancreatic and biliary drainage, ablation of pancreatic cyst neoplasm). The present review describes the interventional endoscopes, the needle systems and the specific devices for other interventional procedures available on the market.
