Endobronchial ultrasound bronchoscopy with needle biopsy

General

The location of the tumor or lymph nodes in the mediastinum determines whether an endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration from the esophagus (EUS), or bronchus (EBUS-TBNA) is performed. EBUS of mediastinal lymph nodes is a minimally invasive procedure which allows the patient to avoid riskier procedures.

Indications

  • Enlarged lymph nodes and/or tumor in the mediastinum
  • To stage lung cancer or to confirm or disprove spread to the lymph nodes of the mediastinum
  • To confirm or disprove suspicion of lung cancer or spread of other cancer in the mediastinum and to confirm the histological type

Goal

  • Make a diagnosis
  • Staging
