PURPOSE: Thoracic lymphadenopathy can be present in greater than thirty percent of patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRD) or congestive heart failure (CHF). However, biopsies may be risky as ESRD and CHF have been associated with increased risk of surgical complications. The objective of this study is to characterize biopsy results and patient outcomes in patients with ESRD and CHF undergoing endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) with transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA).
