Abstract

Bronchial artery embolization has proven to be a safe and effective method of controlling recurrent or massive hemoptysis due to a variety of inflammatory and/or neoplastic processes. We recently had an opportunity to use superselective embolization to successfully treat a patient with hemoptysis from pulmonary metastases, the first such reported case to our knowledge.
