Abstract

Introduction: Mediastinal and hilar nodal staging is one of the key points for differentiating treatment modalities in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The aim of the present study was to determinate the diagnostic yields of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA), endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) and combined EBUS-TBNA and EUS-FNA modalities for nodal staging in potentially operable NSCLC patients.
