abstract

  • Vigorous TPs may contain a substantial fraction of CNB cellularity and DNA content, whereas more-limited TPs are less disruptive to CNBs but remain suitable for cytologic assessment. We suggest avoiding excessively forceful TPs and, whenever clinically feasible, obtaining additional samples to ensure sufficient cellularity for potential ancillary studies.
