Endobronchial ultrasound with transbronchial
needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive and safe technique which is universally accepted for the mediastinum and/or hilum lymph node biopsy.
Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial
needle aspiration of thyroid: report of two cases and systematic review of literature.
However, this costly procedure, which requires surgery under general anesthesia by experienced surgeons, has recently been replaced by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial
needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) sampling, in biopsy of mediastinal, central and hilar lesions, as well as lymph nodes within the tracheobronchial tree.
In the first of the two new studies, the researachers showed that they could obtain lung spheroid cells from human lung disease patients with a relatively non-invasive procedure called a transbronchial
cryobiopsies are now used at many centers around the world to assess patients with diffuse lung disease, (1-13) and this has implications for pathologists who will encounter them.
or surgical lung biopsy is the definitive diagnostic test for PAP.
biopsy (TBB) is an old diagnostic method applied via fiberoptic bronchoscopy.

4) Additional diagnostic workup can include bronchoalveolar lavage, transbronchial
biopsy and surgical lung biopsy when indicated.
Surgical pathology of transbronchial
biopsy specimen of right middle lobe showed granulation tissue within distal air spaces suggestive of organizing pneumonia.
Bronchoalveolar lavage and transbronchial
forceps biopsies of the posterior segment of the right upper lobe lesion were stained positive using Grocott-Methenamine-Silver stain for hyphae with 45-degree branching, possibly due to Aspergillus on necrotic ground (Figure 3).
Bronchoscopy was performed with a bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and transbronchial
