Subject and method:
We provide minimally invasive punction interventions under ultrasound guidance using either abdominal or vaginal probe in three indication groups – diagnostics (tru-cut biopsy), therapy (punction drainage of lymphocyst) and palliation (insertion of permanent peritoneal catheter).

Ultrasound-guided minimally invasive interventions represent a group of accessible and relatively simple methods useful in many indications, not only in gynecologic oncology. Adoption of these methods allows to broadening the spectrum of interventions offered and decreasing patient’s stress.

Key words:
tru-cut biopsy, lymphocyst, ultrasound.
