BACKGROUND: Transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is recognized as a valuable tool for the sampling of mediastinal lymph nodes. In this study, we report data about the diagnostic yield of conventional TBNA in the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer. METHODS: All patients with suspected lung cancer who underwent bronchoscopy with conventional TBNA in the years 2008 to 2012 were evaluated. TBNA was performed on mediastinal lymph nodes enlarged at chest computed tomography scan and/or with increased fluorodeoxyglucose uptake on positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan...

INTRODUCTION: Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) can be used as an alternative to fluoroscopy to visualize a peripheral pulmonary lesion (PPL) and to provide an image guidance for transbronchial biopsy (TBB). The aim of this study was to verify the accuracy of EBUS-guided TBB in the diagnosis of PPLs. METHODS: All the patients with CT-scan evidence of PPL who underwent bronchoscopy with EBUS in the period between 2008 and 2011 were retrospectively evaluated. EBUS was performed using a radial-type miniature ultrasound probe...
