EUS accessories serve to significantly increase the spectrum of available EUS interventions. Extraluminal tissue acquisition is the dominant maneuver among the interventional EUS procedures. With growing experience, new devices, and new indications, the role of EUS accessories will continue to expand. A significant shortcoming of the technology is the paucity of descriptive or comparative studies of and between existing devices. Further studies of these devices to more clearly elucidate optimal usage are needed.
