PURPOSE: Bronchoscopic lung biopsies typically employ forceps for the retrieval of tissue. Recently investigators have studied the utility of cryoprobes for sampling lung tissue during bronchoscopies. In this study we have performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the diagnostic yield and safety of pulmonary cryobiopsies in 3 different clinical settings.
