Background/Aims: It is of vital importance to determine the depth of lesions to be treated by endoscopic submucosal dissection. This study aimed to compare the accuracy of using hot biopsy forceps method with endoscopic ultrasonography for determination of the depth of gastric epithelial neoplasia. Methodology: Hot biopsy forceps method and/or endoscopic ultrasonography were used to determine the depth of lesions in 27 patients. With hot biopsy forceps method, we assumed a lesion completely lifted up by a hot biopsy forceps to be confined to the mucosal layer, and one partly lifted up to be located beyond the mucosal layer. The accuracy of hot biopsy forceps method and endoscopic ultrasonography in determining the depth of lesions were compared. Results: Of the 27 patients, 25 underwent endoscopic submucosal dissection and 2 underwent surgery. The total accuracy of hot biopsy forceps method in determining the depth of lesions was 92.6% and that of endoscopic ultrasonography was 81.8%.Overestimation of hot biopsy forceps method and endoscopic ultrasonography were 3.7% vs. 13.6%, respectively. The sensitivity and the specificity of hot biopsy forceps method were 95.5% and 80.0% and those of EUS were 83.3% and 75.0%. Conclusions: Hot biopsy forceps method has a trend towards higher accuracy and lower overestimation than endoscopic ultrasonography.
