Interventional Techniques in the Thorax of Adults

Percutaneous lung biopsy was first described by Leyden, in 1883, and was carried out in order to establish the infectious nature of lung disease. Currently, percutaneous tissue sampling of a pulmonary, pleural, or mediastinal lesion is indicated when histological diagnosis will further influence the diagnostic strategy and therapeutic options, or modify tumor staging and the sequence of cancer treatment. Cost efficiency by shortening hospital stay has also been demonstrated [1].
