BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS)-guided transbronchial needle aspiration allows for sampling of mediastinal lymph nodes. The external diameter, rigidity, and angulation of the convex probe EBUS renders limited accessibility. This study compares the accessibility and transbronchial needle aspiration capability of the prototype thin convex probe EBUS against the convex probe EBUS in human ex vivo lungs rejected for transplant. METHODS: The prototype thin convex probe EBUS (BF-Y0055; Olympus, Tokyo, Japan) with a thinner tip (5...

Paragangliomas are tumors that originate from the extra-adrenal chromaffin and nonchromaffin cells of neural crest origin. Lymph node metastases are common, while distant metastases to lung, liver, and bone are rare events and usually occur in the presence of a long standing clinically evident primary tumor. Primary diagnosis of paraganglioma at a metastatic site without a known primary is a diagnostic challenge. We report a case of an adult woman with incidentally detected metastasis to bilateral lungs from an occult carotid body paraganglioma, which presented a cytopathological diagnostic dilemma on EBUS-TBNA from paratracheal lymph nodes...

BACKGROUND: Nowadays, small peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) are frequently detected and the prognosis of lung cancer depends on the early diagnosis. Because of the high fee and requiring specialized training, many advanced techniques are not available in many developing countries and rural districts. METHODS: Three sets of opaque soft copper wires visible under the fluoroscopy (Flu) in the Flu-flexible bronchoscopy (FB) group (n = 24), which determined the three planes of the lesion, were respectively placed firmly on the surface of the chest wall with adhesive tape on the chest wall...

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive and safe technique for a sampling of mediastinal lesions. Indications for EBUS-TBNA have gradually expanded since its introduction. The usual approach to cytological sampling of the thyroid gland is percutaneous ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (US-FNA) performed under local anesthesia. US-FNA may be risky or not feasible in intrathoracic/substernal thyroid location. Feasibility of aspirating thyroid lesions with EBUS-TBNA has been occasionally reported...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown differential response to chemotherapy among the subtypes of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Therefore, to accurately differentiate between the types of lung cancer is of paramount importance. Transbronchial biopsy using endobronchial ultrasonography with a guide sheath (EBUS-GS) is a promising method for the diagnosis of NSCLC. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the consistency between the types of lung cancer histologically diagnosed by bronchial biopsy or cytologically by EBUS-GS, and the final diagnosis of the resected specimen...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) has emerged as a minimally invasive technique for diagnosing intrathoracic malignancies and some benignancies; however, there are no data available on the utility of EBUS-TBNA for the diagnosis of non-specific inflammatory intrathoracic lymphadenitis. METHODS: A prospective analysis was performed from 104 patients with enlarged lymphadenopathy suspected of non-specific lymphadenitis referred for EBUS-TBNA between October 2009 and March 2012...

BACKGROUND: Computed tomography guided transthoracic needle aspiration (CT-TTNA) and endobronchial ultrasonography with guide sheath (EBUS-GS) transbronchial lung biopsy are important methods for the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs). Without enough evidence, it is controversial which is a better choice for diagnosing PPLs. In this study, we hypothesized that the complication rate of EBUS-GS would be lower than CT-TTNA and the diagnostic accuracy of EBUS-GS were not inferior to CT-TTNA...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic techniques, including endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), are the initial approach for the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer and the diagnosis of mediastinal and hilar lesions. Historically, the transvascular approach has been avoided because of concerns of bleeding. Here we review our experience with EBUS and EUS transvascular biopsy of mediastinal, hilar, and lung lesions. METHODS: A prospective research database was used to retrospectively identify and review the records 33 consecutive patients who underwent EBUS and EUS transvascular biopsy in an outpatient setting over 4 years...

BACKGROUND: Transoesophageal endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) video-bronchoscope insertion provides pulmonologists access to conduct endoscopic fine-needle aspiration (EUS-B-FNA) of mediastinal lymph node (LN) lesions and also assist in lung cancer staging by sampling left adrenal gland (LAG) lesions. Limited literature have described additional diagnostic value, whilst maintaining patient safety. METHODS: All eligible patients with paraoesophageal lesions on thoracic computed tomography (CT) underwent pulmonologist-performed EUS-B-FNA at two tertiary centres and were included in this prospective observational cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Patients with isolated mediastinal or hilar lymphadenopathy, or peribronchial lesions, are common presentation to clinicians. Due to the difficulty in tissue sampling, the pathological diagnosis is not so easy. Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is an established, highly effective, minimally invasive technique for sampling. The current study was conducted to investigate the value of EBUS-TBNA in patients of solitary mediastinal, hilar lymphadenectasis, or peribronchial lesions...

In lung cancer patients, the only available diagnostic material often comes from biopsy or from cytological samples obtained by fine needle aspiration (FNA). There is a lack of easily detectable cytomorphological features for rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) to orient lung cancer diagnosis towards a specific tumor histotype. We studied the cytological features evaluated on site to define tumor histotype and to establish the number of specimens to be taken. Cytological specimens from 273 consecutive patients were analyzed with ROSE: bronchoscopy with transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) had been performed in 72 patients and with endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-TBNA in 201...

Objective: Conventional bronchoscopy has a low diagnostic yield for peripheral pulmonary lesions. Radial-probe EBUS employs a rotating ultrasound transducer at the end of a probe that is passed through the working channel of the bronchoscope. Radial-probe EBUS facilitates the localization of peripheral pulmonary nodules, thus increasing the diagnostic yield. The objective of this study was to present our initial experience using radial-probe EBUS in the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions at a tertiary hospital...

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is routinely used for accessing mediastinal lymph nodes and masses. However, in patients with respiratory failure, who are being mechanically ventilated through an endotracheal tube, EBUS-TBNA may not be feasible due to several reasons. In such patients, the esophageal route offers a useful alternative for accessing mediastinal lesions. Herein, we describe a 50-year-old man with a mediastinal mass, who was being invasively ventilated for respiratory failure...

BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasonography with guide sheath (EBUS-GS) could be useful for diagnosing ground-glass opacity (GGO) predominant-type lesions in the peripheral lung. Furthermore, several studies have reported that transbronchial biopsy using EBUS-GS and virtual bronchoscopic navigation (VBN) was safe and effective for diagnosing small peripheral lung lesions. Our objectives were to diagnose solitary peripheral GGO predominant-type lesions by transbronchial biopsy using EBUS-GS and VBN under radiographic fluoroscopic guidance, and to evaluate the clinical factors associated with diagnostic yield...

Introduction. Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a procedure that provides access to the mediastinal staging; however, EBUS cannot be used to stage all of the nodes in the mediastinum. In these cases, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is used for complete staging. Objective. To provide a synthesis of the evidence on the diagnostic performance of EBUS + EUS in patients undergoing mediastinal staging. Methods. Systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the diagnostic yield of EBUS + EUS compared with surgical staging...

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a technique for the detection of mediastinal abnormalities. A total of 548 EBUS procedures were performed for various indications, and in four cases (0.7%), filling defects in central pulmonary arteries were demonstrated fortuitously during the procedure. Subsequently, all patients underwent contrast-enhanced CT of the thorax to confirm the diagnosis of pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE). In three of the four cases, there was a concomitant lung cancer. PTE can be incidentally detected during EBUS; therefore, pulmonary arteries should be examined carefully during EBUS in all patients, particularly in patients with suspected or proven malignancy...

Since superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS) is a critical condition, immediate diagnostic approach and therapy are imperative to avoid potentially life-threatening complications. Here, we report a case of lung cancer with SVCS, which was diagnosed through intravascular tumor biopsy using endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). EBUS-TBNA enabled us to obtain tissue sufficient for diagnosis, without significant complications. Prompt diagnosis was followed by appropriate anticancer treatment and improvement in the symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: Reliable differentiation of benign from malignant mediastinal lymphadenopathy is important, especially in countries with a high tuberculosis burden. We hypothesized that specific sonographic features on endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) may differentiate benign from malignant nodes. In this study, the sonographic features of non-malignant and malignant nodes were compared. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of patients with intrathoracic lymphadenopathy who underwent EBUS-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA)...
