Ultrathin Bronchoscopy with Multimodal Devices for Peirpheral Pulmonary Lesions A Randomized Trial

This article reported that the diagnostic yield of the ultrathin bronchoscopy method is higher than that of the conventional bronchoscopy with a guide sheath metod.

 

 

 

Assessment of Ergonomic Strain and Positioning During Bronchoscopic Procedures A Feasibility Study

This article reported that technological advances in bronchoscope design (rotational-head) may have the potential to improve procedural ergonomics.

 

 

 

 

 

Use of an Ultrathin vs Thin Bronchoscope for Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions: A Randomized Trial

This article reported that multimodal bronchoscopy using a Ultrathin Bronchoscope afforded a higher diagnostic yield than that using a thin bronchoscope in the diagnosis of small peripheral pulmonary lesions.

 

 

 

 

 

Meta-analysis of Guided Bronchoscopy for the Evaluation of the Pulmonary Nodule

This article reported that the diagnostic yield of guided bronchoscopic techniques is better than that of traditional transbronchial biopsy. Although the yield remains lower than that of TTNA, the procedural risk is lower.

 

 

 

 

 

Improved diagnostic yield of bronchoscopy in a community practice: Combination of electromagnetic navigation system and rapid on-site evaluation

This article reported that test performance characteristics of EBUS transbronchial lung biopsy for the investigation of PPLs is very good, with excellent specificity and sensitivity markedly higher than for routine bronchoscopy.

 

 

 

 

 

Sensitivity of Radial Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Bronchoscopy for Lung Cancer in Patients With Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions

This article reported that r-EBUS has an excellent safety profile,

 

 

 

 

 

Efficacy of Radial Endobronchial Ultrasound (R-EBUS)guided transbronchial cryobiopsy for peripheralpulmonary lesions (PPL’s): A systematic review andmeta-analysis

This article reported that they did not observe a superior yield of cryobiopsy as compared with forceps biopsy for PPL.

 

 

 

 

 

Radial Endobronchial Ultrasound for the Diagnosis of Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

This article reported that R-EBUS performed well in diagnosing PPLs with a low complication rate. Lesions >2 cm, malignant in nature, associated with a CT BS and those biopsied with the R-EBUS probe in them have a higher diagnostic yield.

 

 

 

 

 

Diagnosis of Small Pulmonary Lesions by Transbronchial Lung Biopsy With Radial Endobronchial Ultrasound and Virtual Bronchoscopic Navigation Versus CT-guided Transthoracic Needle Biopsy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

This article reported that transbronchial lung biopsy for lesions (> 2 cm but 3 cm) combined with rEBUS and VBN achieves a relatively acceptable diagnostic yield with a lower risk of adverse events than CT-guided lung biopsy.

 

 

 

 

 

Transbronchial Needle Aspiration in Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

This article suggested that fluoroscopy-guided TBNA is a useful and safe diagnostic technique for the diagnosis of PPLs,
