BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE:The additional diagnostic value of endoscopic ultrasound-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) over lymph node (LN) echofeatures alone in evaluating lymphadenopathy is unknown. The objectives of this study are (1) to prospectively evaluate the utility of EUS-FNA in evaluating mediastinal or peri-intestinal lymphadenopathy and to compare its yield to that of echofeatures alone and (2) to determine clinical and endosonographic features predictive of malignant involvement of… CONTINUE READING
