Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants with a positive biopsy result [ Time Frame: 2 days after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 3 weeks after ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: January 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: EBUS TBNF
single arm trial, patients with enlarged mediastinal nodes will be examine
Procedure: EBUS TBNF
Transbronchial needle forceps will be use with the EBUS TBNA scope
Other Name: Endobronchial ultrasound

Detailed Description:

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
