O28.01 - EBUS-centered vs. EUS-Centered Mediastinal Staging in Lung Cancer:<br /> a randomized controlled trial. (ID 1037)
10:30 - 12:00 | Author(s): H.J. Kang
The impact of primary procedure and procedure sequence has not been studied in combined application of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) in lung cancer staging.
In a randomized controlled trial, 160 patients with histologically confirmed or strongly suspected potentially operable non-small cell lung cancer were enrolled (Group A, n=80, EBUS-centered; Group B, n=80, EUS-centered). In Groups A and B, EBUS-TBNA and EUS-FNA with ultrasound bronchoscope were used as the first procedure, respectively, and secondary procedures were added.
Diagnostic values were evaluated in 148 patients (74 in each group). In Groups A and B, the diagnostic accuracy (93.2% vs. 97.3%, respectively, p=0.2454) and sensitivity (85.3% vs.92.0%, respectively, p=0.4312) in detecting mediastinal metastasis were not statistically different. In Group A, adding EUS-FNA to EBUS-TBNA did not significantly increase the accuracy (91.9% to 93.2%; p=0.7540) and sensitivity (82.4% to 85.3%; p=0.7419). In group B, adding EBUS-TBNA to EUS-FNA increased the accuracy (86.5% to 97.3%; p=0.0160) and sensitivity (60.0% to 92.0%; p=0.0081). There were no inter-group differences in procedure time, cardio-respiratory parameters during procedures, complications, or patient satisfaction.
In combination of EBUS-TBNA and EUS-FNA in mediastinal staging, diagnostic values and patient satisfaction were not different between EBUS-centered and EUS-centered group. However, the necessity of EBUS-TBNA following EUS suggests EBUS-TBNA is a better primary procedure in endoscopic mediastinal staging.
