  Purpose

A prospective diagnostic clinical study randomising patients undergoing endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) of enlarged mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes to have sampling using the usual EBUS-TBNA needle or a novel biopsy forceps (EBUS-TBNB).

The study aims to establish whether the use of EBUS-TBNB can significantly increase the diagnostic yield over EBUS-TBNA, without an increase in complication rates.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The percentage of lymph nodes sampled resulting in a definitive diagnosis (as defined in the protocol) in the two study arms. [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The definition of a "definitive diagnosis" is dependant on the diagnosis and is clarified below:

    • Carcinoma/lymphoma: The lymph node sample is adequate to make a diagnosis as well as provide immunohistochemistry information enabling subtyping of the tumour.
    • Sarcoidosis: The presence of well formed epithelioid non-caseating granulomas.
    • Mycobacterial infection: The presence of caseating granulomas, positive Ziehl Nielson staining for acid fast bacilli, or the tissue successfully cultures Mycobacterium.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The difference in the complication rate between the two study arms [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 250
Study Start Date: October 2011
