Brief description/objective

A variant application of the renal Quick-Core needle in 3 patients with cavo-atrial tumors is reported. In all 3 patients either a transjugular or transfemoral venous biopsy approach with this device yielded sufficient tissue for histological diagnosis at the first attempt. Bioptic diagnoses were confirmed either by surgery or radiological and clinical response to a specific chemotherapy. There were no procedure-related complications.
