PURPOSE: The reported incidence of peripheral endobronchial ultrasound (pEBUS) related infectious complications is below 1% although studies have never focused solely on them or reported their risk factors. The goal of this study is to describe our local pEBUS infectious complication rate and characterize patient, lesion and procedural factors associated with infectious complications.
