Abstract

Background: Rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) of cytologic specimens is a useful ancillary technique in needle aspiration procedures of pulmonary/mediastinal lesions, but few reports had been carried out to confirm the utility in the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) by radial probe endobronchial ultrasound (R-EBUS). Methods: To evaluate the impact of ROSE on the diagnostic yield of R-EBUS for PPLs, we retrospectively analyzed the diagnostic yields of transbronchial biopsy (TBB) or brushing using R-EBUS for patients with PPLs in a tertiary university hospital from December 2012 to December 2014. Results: A total of 815 patients with PPLs were included. A definite diagnosis was made by R-EBUS-guided TBB or brushing for 627 patients (76.9%). A total of 279 patients (34.2%) were examined by a ROSE technique. The combination of R-EBUS guided TBB or brushing with ROSE raised the diagnostic yield in the diagnosis of PPLs, especially difficult cases: right apical and left apical-posterior segment locations, small PPLs
