The aim of this study was to determine whether or not radial probe endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is superior to conventional TBNA in the diagnosis of mediastinal lymphadenopathies in routine clinical practice. Consecutive patients, who were referred for TBNA, were randomized to conventional TBNA and EBUS-guided TBNA groups. Patients were also grouped according to the anatomic location of the pathologic lymph nodes to evaluate if there was a… CONTINUE READING
