Figure 4. Meta-analysis comparing mean number of needle passes of 22G fine-needle biopsy and 22G FNA. Analysis of number of needle passes needed to obtain adequate sample showed a nonsignificantly positive trend in favor of FNB (mean difference: −0.32, −0.66-0.02; P = 0.07) with high evidence of heterogeneity (I2 = 89%)
