As liquid run-off during application is detrimental to its sealing efficacy, we developed a modified technique and assessed it in vitro. Methods Caudal lobes of freshly excised swine lungs (n = 20) were intubated and ventilated. A standardized...

Endobronchial ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration versus transcervical mediastinoscopy in nodal staging of non small cell lung cancer: a prospective comparison study

BackgroundAt present only few studies directly compare the diagnostic yield of endobronchial ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (EBUS-FNA) and transcervical video-assisted mediastinoscopy (TM) for mediastinal lymph node staging in patients with NSCLC. If and when EBUS-FNA may replace TM as Gold Standard remains controversial.MethodsFrom April 2008 to December 2009, 36...
