BACKGROUND: Conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (c-TBNA) and endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) are both valuable diagnostic techniques for the diagnosis of hilar/mediastinal lesions. Although a superiority of EBUS-TBNA over c-TBNA may be expected, evidence-based data on a direct comparison between these 2 procedures are still lacking. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to test the superiority of EBUS-TBNA over c-TBNA in a randomized trial and to evaluate the cost-effectiveness profile of a staged strategy, including c-TBNA as initial test followed by EBUS-TBNA, in case of inconclusive results at rapid on-site evaluation...

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive method for diagnosing and staging of lung cancer. EBUS-TBNA obtained small specimens. Rapid on-site examination (ROSE) is a rapid, real-time examination method. The aim of our study is to evaluate the impact of ROSE on adequate specimen sampling, rapid results and high diagnostic rate. We present the experience of the Department of Bronchology, "Leon Daniello" Clinic of Pulmonology, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, with EBUS-TBNA as a tool for diagnostic of adenopathies of unknown etiology...

BACKGROUND Solitary fibrous tumors of the middle mediastinal space are uncommon and often not discovered until symptoms secondary to compression of adjacent structures occur. Diagnosis requires surgical biopsy and histological tissue analysis. We describe the ECHO appearance of the solitary fibrous tumor and successful non-invasive EBUS diagnosis. This method of diagnosis allowed for surgical planning for resection and allowed us to exclude non-surgical diseases, such as small cell carcinoma. CASE REPORT A 32-year-old man presented to his primary care physician with worsening intermittent chronic chest pain with recent progressive dysphagia, cough, and dyspnea...

BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a well-established first-line invasive modality for mediastinal lymph node staging in lung cancer patients and in the diagnostic workup of patients with mediastinal adenopathy. With the current 21- and 22-gauge (G) EBUS-TBNA needles, the procedure can be limited by the degree of flexibility in the needle and the size of the lumen in tissue acquisition. OBJECTIVE: We report our initial experience with a first-generation flexible 19-G EBUS-TBNA (Flex 19G; Olympus Respiratory America, Redmond, WA, USA) needle with regards to efficacy and safety...

REVIEW
Katarzyna Czarnecka-Kujawa, Kazuhiro Yasufuku
This review provides an update on the current role of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and mediastinoscopy (Med) in assessment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Invasive mediastinal lymph node (LN) staging is the major application for both of these techniques. Up until recently, Med was the gold standard for invasive mediastinal LN staging in NSCLC. However, EBUS-TBNA has shown to be equivalent, and in some studies better than Med for invasive staging of lung cancer...
