Mediastinal Staging of Lung Cancer With EBUS-TBNA and EUS-B-FNA

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
National Cancer Center, Korea Identifier:
First received: August 25, 2008
Last updated: June 23, 2009
Last verified: June 2009
The purpose of this study is to find a role of EUS-B-FNA in the mediastinal staging of potentially operable lung cancer. The investigators perform EBUS-TBNA and EUS-B-FNA on potentially operable lung cancer patients. The investigators perform EBUS(+/- TBNA) and EUS-B (ultrasonographic examination through the esophagus) on all subjects. EUS-B-FNA will be performed on inaccessible nodes or difficult nodes to be sampled by EBUS-TBNA. Additional diagnostic values of EUS-B-FNA as compared to EBUS-TBNA alone will be estimated.

Condition Intervention
Lung Cancer Procedure: EBUS-TBNA, EUS-B-FNA (EUS-FNA with bronchoscope)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Minimally Invasive Mediastinal Staging of Potentially Operable Lung Cancer With Endobronchial Ultrasound Guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration(EBUS-TBNA) and Transesophageal Aspiration Using Ultrasonic Bronchoscope (EUS-B-FNA)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The diagnostic values of EBUS-TBNA plus EUS-B-FNA as compared to EBUS-TBNA alone [ Time Frame: June 2009 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Proportion and the location of lymph nodes accessible by EBUS-TBNA and EUS-B-FNA. [ Time Frame: June 2009 ]

Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: August 2008
Study Completion Date: March 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: EBUS-TBNA, EUS-B-FNA (EUS-FNA with bronchoscope)
    EBUS-TBNA is a bronchoscopic diagnostic method that enables real time aspiration of paratracheal and peribronchial lesions. EUS-FNA is a procedure to obtain samples through the esophagus under real-time ultrasound guidance. In this study, EUS-FNA will be applied using a ultrasonic bronchoscope (EUS-B-FNA).
