Abstract

Image-guided percutaneous needle biopsy (PNB) is an important and increasingly utilized method of minimally invasive tissue sampling for a broad variety of disease processes. While infrequent, major bleeding is a potential complication of PNB and can be life-threatening, especially when unrecognized. On the other hand, prompt recognition and treatment of major bleeding in this setting can prevent significant morbidity or mortality. It is therefore crucial for anyone performing PNB to be familiar with the diagnosis and management of bleeding complications. This article reviews the risk factors for major bleeding in the setting of PNB, the presentation and imaging findings of a spectrum of bleeding complications encountered during and following PNB, and the management of those findings based on experience at a single, high volume, biopsy center.
