Transtracheal aspiration using rigid bronchoscopy and a rigid needle for investigating mediastinal masses
Journal of Bronchology
-Use of the flexible needle via the fibreoptic bronchoscope to aspirate mediastinal nodes or masses has largely superseded the use of the rigid needle via the rigid bronchoscope. However, the yield at fibreoptic bronchoscopy is relatively low, although this improves with the use of a wider gauge needle. In this study the sensitivity and the safety of rigid needle sampling of the mediastinum in the diagnosis of lung cancer is evaluated. Methods -Transtracheal needle aspiration (TTNA) wasdoi:10.1097/00128594-199701000-00023 fatcat:iggjqc6pqzhh7bvr5janox4qwy
