SEPTEMBER 2011 - VOL.2 | ORIGINAL ARTICLE
OBJECTIVE

To study the effectiveness of Endobronchial Ultrasonography (EBUS) with Guide Sheath (GS) in detecting peripheral lung lesions.

MATERIALS AND METHODS

Between January and March 2011, 8 patients gave their informed consent to EBUS with GS being performed.

RESULTS

In 7 patients (87.5%) EBUS detected the PPLs.
