Alveolar hemorrhage is a frequent complication of lung TTNB but is usually limited to the needle path.
In a comparison of two techniques for TTNB of small subpleural lesions, the long needle-path technique was associated with a higher risk of bleeding than the short needle-path technique (28).
Some authors found age, emphysema, subsolid type, nonperipheral, middle, and basal location, and dual antiplatelet therapy to be significantly associated with pulmonary hemorrhage after TTNB, but most of these studies used only univariate analysis (15-17, 21, 29).
