SRJ is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. Bilateral pleural effusion, mediastinal adeno- pathies and esophageal dilatation were noted.
The patient evolved favorably with conservative management, and no complications or other hemoptysis episodes were reported. Pulmonary artery aneurysms are rare. SNIP measures contextual citation impact by wighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
Although a rare complication, pulmonary artery pseudoa- neurysms are associated with ramsussen morbidity and aneurissmas, and should not be missed. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract Hemoptysis as a sequelae of past tubercular infection of lungs is a known occurrence. No dilation of the bronchial arteries or extravasation of contrast medium from these vessels was observed.
Fibroproliferative vasculopathy and mainly microvascular abnormalities are present in systemic sclerosis 6. Recebido a 02 de novembro de ; Aceite a rasumssen de dezembro de Acute Med, 11pp. The treat- ment of choice is more frequently endovascular emboliza- tion as it is proven to be a safe and effective alternative to surgery Pulmonary artery rupture associated with the Swan-Ganz rasmhssen.
Massive haemoptysis of pulmonary arterial origin: Case 2 Case 2. Even when the pulmonary aneurysm is present, the actual bronchial bleeding may be from the bronchial artery, rather than from the pulmonary artery. Mycotic aneurisms and pyogenic bacteria PAPs are more frequently diagnosed in intrave- nous drug users and are associated with endocarditis and septic embolization.
A chest computed tomography CT angiography was performed, showing an aneurysm 1 cm in diameter in the subsegmentary pulmonary artery of the right lower lobe Fig. Hemoptysis as a sequelae of past tubercular infection of lungs is a known occurrence. Multiplane reformatted images Fig. Mild hemoptysis in a patient with history of old treated tuberculosis of lungs is usually secondary to tubercular reactivation or secondary bacterial or Aspergillus infection of a tuberculous cavity.
Massive hemoptysis in such a patient is usually treated by bronchial artery embolization and occasionally by surgical lobectomy. Clinical presentation can range from an incidental finding to a life-threatening bleeding with massive hemoptysis. We report the case of a year-old man with advanced human immunodeficiency virus infection stage C3smoker and former intravenous drug user, who presented at our hospital with life-threatening hemoptysis, hypotension and tachycardia.
In addition to emphysema phenotype chronic obstructive lung disease and hepatitis C-related liver cirrhosis, he had had multiple lung infections caused by unusual pathogens Pneumocystis jiroveciinon-tuberculous mycobacteria, semi-invasive aspergillosis, etc. Aneeurismas a patient presents with hemoptysis, urgent CTA is as accurate as bronchoscopy in detecting the site of bleeding 8, helps to identify the underlying cause and the effects of hemorrhage on lung parenchyma.
He had undergone bronchial artery embolization earlier at a different hospital. Translators working for the Journal are in charge of the corresponding translations. TOP 10 Related.

Clinical presentation Hemoptysis is the usual presenting symptom and may be life-threatening when it is massive. Pathology A weakening of the pulmonary artery wall from adjacent cavitary tuberculosis is the cause of this condition: there is a progressive weakening of the arterial wall as granulation tissue replaces both the adventitia and the media. This is then gradually replaced by fibrin, resulting in thinning of the arterial wall, pseudoaneurysm formation, and subsequent rupture with hemorrhage. Location Usually distributed peripherally and beyond the branches of the main pulmonary arteries 2. Radiographic features CT CT pulmonary angiography is the investigation of choice 4. Often seen on contrasted chest images as a focal dilatation of one of the pulmonary segmentary arteries adjacent to tuberculous parenchymal change or a chronic tuberculous cavity.
Loading Stack — 0 images remaining. Life-threatening hemoptysis is a rasjussen emergency defined as the expectoration of over ml blood in a h period. Iatrogenic lesions are the most frequent cause of PAPs and include right heart and pulmonary artery catheterization, chest tube insertion, pulmonary biopsies and cardiothoracic surgery 3. Pulmonary angiography and embolization for severe haemoptysis due to cavitary pulmonary tuberculosis.
