INTRODUCTION: Bronchoscopic trans-parenchymal nodule access (BTPNA) is a novel endoscopic technique that creates a virtual pathway to the lesion and is less limited by location of the airway. The BTPNA uses a balloon catheter equipped guide sheath for a trans-parenchymal approach to the lesion. In a porcine model the CrossCountry TM trans-bronchial access tool was compared to existing BTPNA endoscopic needle with a balloon dilator. The device was successful in creating an airway exit point and tunneling to the target lesion via the parenchyma with no greater risk compared to sham device.
