Özet

Introduction: In the elderly population, diagnosis and initial treatment should be considered as soon as possible because of co-morbidities and complications. We aimed to evaluate the findings of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) to determine the diagnostic utility of EBUS-TBNA in patients 65 years of age and older.
