Abstract

In the last few years, ultrasound-guided vacuum-assisted breast biopsy (US-VABB) has replaced surgical biopsy due to higher diagnostic accuracy and lower patient discomfort, and, at present, an even greater possibility is represented by the new wireless ultrasound-guided VAB device (Wi-UVAB). The purpose of our study is to determine the diagnostic accuracy of this new device in a sizeable representative number of patients. From January 2014 to June 2018, 168 biopsies were performed in our institution using the new Wi-UVAB device. We analyzed sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and diagnostic accuracy of biopsies obtained with the new device using surgical results as reference point, following patients for at least one year. In our cohort, we obtained a complete sensitivity of 97.5%, an absolute sensitivity of 94.3%, a complete specificity of 98%, and an absolute specificity of 98%. The positive predictive value of the procedure was 97.5% while the negative predictive value was 98%. The diagnostic accuracy was 98%. The Wi-UVAB is a safe procedure with high diagnostic accuracy, comparable to that of the traditional vacuum-assisted breast biopsy and even higher than that of core needle biopsy (CNB). Moreover, the Wi-UVAB is easy to use and shows low costs as core needle biopsy (CNB).
