Further development of EUS-guided access to the vessels could potentially replace the interventional radiology vascular interventions in the abdomen and provide more efficient and precise, as well as safer local application of drugs (chemotherapeutics, fibrinolytics, etc.), vascular embolization (sclerotherapy, coiling, etc.), endoprostheses placement, and creation of portosystemic shunts [48, 49].
