Abstract

EBUS-TBNA is gaining widespread acceptance as a minimally invasive procedure for mediastinal staging and re-staging of lung cancer, diagnosis of lung tumors adjacent to large airways and characterization of both malignant and benign lymphadenopathy. The aim of this article is to describe the appropriate setting and practical aspects of the procedure that may help at the start of a new EBUS-TBNA program to improve patient safety, comfort and procedural yield according to operator experience, procedure aim, and institutional needs.
