Prove the feasibility of a needle forceps in patients with enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes
Patients with enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes must be staged. The EBUS TBNA technique is an established technique. Unfortunately the size of the needle is limited to 21 gauge. With tne new designed needle forceps it should be possible to obtain more material and establish the diagnosis more often
Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

The purpose of this study is to find a role of EUS-B-FNA in the mediastinal staging of potentially operable lung cancer. The investigators perform EBUS-TBNA and EUS-B-FNA on potentially op...
The purpose of this study is to make a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the intrathoracic lymph nodes by CP-EBUS elastography for the first time, and to make a benign and malignant...
EBUS elastography is a method to determine stiffness of lymph nodes, based on the minute deformation of the node by the beating heart. Whether EBUS elastography may further increase the se...
This study will determine the feasibility of the novel thin convex probe endobronchial ultrasound (TCP-EBUS) in human resected lobes. The primary end point is to clarify the feasibility of...
The aim of this study is to determine the diagnostic values of EBUS-TBNA in the mediastinal re-staging after induction treatment in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. Primary objec...
BACKGROUND Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and guide sheath (EBUS-GS) are gaining popularity for diagnosis and staging of lung cancer compared to CT-guided...
Endobronchial ultrasound and transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) are commonly used for the diagnosis and mediastinal staging of lung cancer. Molecular markers are becoming increasingly import...
This study aimed to semi-quantitatively evaluate the elastographic imaging color distribution of mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes (LNs), and explored its utility in helping define malignant and benig...
Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) has revolutionized the diagnosis of lung cancer over the last decade. This minimally invasive diagnostic method has also become increasingly important in the case of ot...
Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle biopsy (EBUS-TBNA) has proven to be an effective and minimally invasive tool to diagnose and stage lung cancer. However, its use for the diagnosis...
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
