PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of a new flexible 19G EBUS-TBNA needle in patients.

METHODS: A new 19G EBUS-TBNA needle (Olympus Respiratory America, Redmond, WA, USA) with a larger diameter and improved flexibility was provided to 2 centers experienced with EBUS-TBNA (20 needles each). Physicians at both sites were asked to complete forms evaluating the performance of the needles in a case series 07/2015-09/2015. The stations sampled were recorded and needle performance was assessed at each target location. The questions included ratings of absolute (stand-alone) and relative (compared to physicians’ historical experience with other needles) performance in the areas of penetration, visibility, and ability to collect samples.
