Abstract

Fluoroscopically guided transthoracic fine needle biopsies were performed in 890 patients (380 female, 582 male, mean age: 56 years). In 795 patients (89,4%) the first biopsy was successfull. The success rate of biopsy correlated closely with the size of the lesion and increasedwith larger size. Sensitivicity in the diagnosis of malignant lesionswas 94.6%, specifity 99.5%. Due to cytological, histological, and clinical confirmation of benign lung lesions in 300 patients (33.7% of all patients), the number of unnecessary diagnostic thoracotomies for benign disease could be reduced significantly. In 9 of 113 cases (8%) histological reclassification of the cytologic results was necessary. Reclassification was not necessary in the differentiation between benignand malignant lesions and between small cell and non-small cell carcinomas. The overall complication rate was 24.7% (220 patients). Only 36patients (4% of all patients) required chest-tube insertion. There were no fatal complications. Percutaneous fluoroscopically guided transthoracic fine needle biopsy of the lung, performed with the Rotex needle, is a time-effective, safe, and efficiant method for diagnosing focal pulmonary lesions.
