Özet

Introduction: Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) is an endoscopic method that aids needle aspiration to see the bronchial wall and adjacent tissues with an ultrasound probe. Pulmonary arteries are rarely present between the bronchus wall and the tissue. In this case, it was necessary to make a selection between invasive processes and transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) through the pulmonary artery. There are few case reports about the safety of TBNA through the pulmonary artery. We aimed to present the results of EBUS guided TBNA through the pulmonary arteries.
