Limited data suggest that EUS is associated with a rate of perforation that is similar to standard endoscopy. Lack of operator experience, older patient age, and a history of difficult esophageal intubation may be risk factors for cervical esophageal perforation. Duodenal perforations have also been reported to occur during EUS examinations, but their overall incidence has not been studied.22 No data on the incidence of perforations during EUS in the colon are available.
