 We retrospectively evaluated the efficacy of EUS for diagnosis of the infiltration depth of colorectal laterally-spreading tumors. The subjects were 63 lesions including 39 lesions of granular type(homogenous 11, nodular mixed 28)and 24 lesions of non-granular type. A 20MHz miniature ultrasonic probe(MUSP)was used for observation in all lesions, and a 7.5MHz ultrasonic endoscope was used for 23 lesions at the same time. The depth of invasion was divided into SM-slight>and SM-massive≦, and the results of EUS and histological diagnoses were compared. The infiltration depth was correctly diagnosed by MUSP in 79.8%. The cause of diagnostic failure in diagnosis was poor visualization. In granular type lesions, those with submucosal or deeper invasion were not included, and EUS diagnoses were correct except for one cecal lesion. For granular type lesions, EUS is considered unnecessary. The major reason for poor visualization was echo attenuation which was most remarkable in nodular mixed type of granular lesions larger than 30mm in diameter and 10mm in thickness. Such lesions, however, could be sufficiently visualized with the 7.5MHz echoendoscope. Other causes of poor visualization included inability to obtain perpendicular cross-sectional images of the lesions or to fill the lumen with deaerated water. These tendencies were often observed in the transverse or sigmoid colon. Since the histology, infiltration depth, mode of invasion and site of lesion differ according to the macroscopic type of lesions, the needs and difficulty in using EUS should be considered and an appropriate instrument should be selected.
