Endoscopic Ultrasound with Aspiration

General

The location of the tumor or lymph node in the mediastinum determines whether an endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS) from the esophagus or endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) should be performed.

EUS with aspiration of lymph nodes in the mediastinum is a minimally invasive examination whereby patients can avoid examinations associated with more risk. With EUS, the mediastinal lymph nodes can be sampled at most levels of the mediastinum. 

Indication

  • Enlarged lymph nodes and/or tumor in the mediastinum raising suspicion of a serious lung disease, cancer in the esophagus or stomach. 

Goal

  • Establish a diagnosis 
  • Stage determination
