Computed tomography-guided transsternal biopsy was successful in 10 anterior mediastinal masses in 10 patients, with use of a coaxial length-matched bone biopsy system comprising an outer cannula and an inner eccentric drill bit. No complications occurred in nine of 10 biopsies (eight performed with an automatic cutting needle, two with a fine needle), with less discomfort than was caused by injection of anesthetic.
