AbstractINTRODUCTION: Expedient pathological diagnosis is crucial in selection of appropriate treatment in patients presented with superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS). The performance and safety of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) in this setting is unknown. METHODS: Over a 4-year period, patients presented with SVCS in the presence of mediastinal mass and referred for EBUS-TBNA were enrolled for the study. The procedure was performed under local anaesthesia with conscious sedation. TBNA was performed under real-time with the curvilinear probe of EBUS. Rapid on site cytological examination (ROSE) was not available. RESULTS: Eighteen procedures of EBUS-TBNA were performed in 17 patients. Malignancy was confirmed in 16 patients (diagnostic yield 94.1%). There was no major complication including significant bleeding or pneumothorax related to the procedures. CONCLUSIONS: EBUS-TBNA has high diagnostic yield and is safe in patients presented with SVCS and mediastinal mass.
