Abstract

To determine the accuracy of US-guided core needle biopsy for the diagnosis of thoracic lesions. Between January 1997 and June 1999, 32 US-guided core needle biopsies were performed in our institute. This method was chosen in every case when the lesion abutted the chest wall. Conventional histological examinations supplemented by immunohistochemical methods were performed. The location and size of the mass, the number of samplings, the needle size, the histologic results and complications were recorded. 16 lesions reached the anterior, 2 the lateral and 13 the posterior chest wall. One mass could be biopsied from the supraclavicular region. The mean diameter was 4.5 cm and the number of passes was 1.8. 18 G, 16 G and 14 G needles were used in 28, 2 and 2 cases, respectively. In 30 of the 32 cases an exact histological diagnosis could be provided. In 2 cases only necrotic tissue was seen in the bioptic sample. No major complication occurred. Minor complications including pain and collaptiform weakness were documented in 3 cases. US-guided core needle biopsy of thoracic lesions is a safe, quick and accurate method. One sampling with an 18 G biopsy needle and the applied histological methods are sufficient to achieve a final diagnosis.
