A pitfall during endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial forceps biopsy of the mediastinal lymph nodes.

Abstract

The high diagnostic yield and favorable safety profile of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial forceps biopsy of the mediastinal lymph nodes have been recently demonstrated.
