INTRODUCTION The optimal suction pressure during endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) remains to be determined. The aim of this study was to compare suction pressures for performance in collecting sufficient tissue specimens from mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes during EBUS-TBNA. METHODS Retrospective analysis of(More)
Aim It was previously reported that several patients with pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1b (PHP-1b) have a more generalised imprinting defect. However there was no report that a patient of PHP-1a has any generalised imprinting defects. Here we aim to report a case of PHP-1a with hypomethylation at the Kv-differentially methylated region (DMR) (11p15.5),(More)
