Severe hemoptysis of pulmonary arterial origin: Please cite this article as: Open in a separate window. His evaluation revealed no evidence of active tuberculosis. Although a rare aneurismax, pulmonary artery pseudoa- neurysms can have distinct etiologies, namely iatrogenic lesions.

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Failure to do so may prevent detection of a Rasmussen’s aneurysm, and if the patient finally undergoes an angiogram for treatment of their hemoptysis, the result may be unnecessary embolization of the systemic arteries. Hemoptysis in such a patient can result from a number of etiologies like tubercular reactivation, bronchiectasis, aspergiloma and vascular complications like hypervascularity from bronchial arteries, arteriovenous fistula formation, pseudoaneurysms, etc.

Rasmussen’s aneurysm: A rare and forgotten cause of hemoptysis

Chest,pp. He underwent CT pulmonary angiogram for evaluation of the cause of hemoptysis, which revealed three large Rasmussen’s aneurysms rssmussen from the branches of right pulmonary artery Fig. We present a case of a 67 year old woman with systemic sclerosis that developed massive hemoptysis after right heart catheterization. This coil is very soft and takes the shape of the aneurysm easily and without putting pressure on the wall, and that is why, this coil is also used for embolization in the intracranial vascular aneurysms.

August Pages All manuscripts are sent to peer-review and handled by the Editor or an Associate Editor from the team. Massive hemoptysis in them is often secondary to a vascular anuerismas.

Pulmonary artery false aneurys- ms secondary to Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheters. Clinical presentation can range from an incidental finding to a life-threatening bleeding with massive hemoptysis.

Pulmonary artery aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms in adults: Computer tomography angiography rasmusssn a pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm in the posterior basal segmental branch of the left lower lobe. D Coronal oblique MIP CT reconstruction after embolization showing embolization material coil occluding the Rasmussen’s aneurysm arrow.

Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso. Life-threatening hemoptysis is a medical emergency defined as the rasmussne of over ml blood in a h period. Embolization procedure technique for treating Rasmussen’s aneurysm needs special care, as being pseudoaneurysm, they are very prone to rupture and bleeding during the procedure. Archivos de Bronconeumologia http: Journal List Indian Heart J v. This branch was occluded by releasing two Hilal coils Cook Rasmusden, Bloomington, IN, USA in the feeding portion of this branch prior to the aneurysms and thus occluding both of them.

Letter to the Editor. Rasmussen’s aneurysm is a pulmonary artery aneurysm associated with a cavitary lung lesion. Pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysms may be caused by infection, aneurismws, neoplasm or iatrogenic lesions, such as pulmo- nary artery rupture during right heart artery catheterization.

Hemoptysis is a known complication of active or old burnt-out pulmonary tuberculosis. The Journal is published both in Spanish and English. Failure to do so may prevent detection of a Rasmussen’s aneurysm, and if the patient finally undergoes an angiogram for treatment of their hemoptysis, the result may be unnecessary embolization of the systemic arteries.

CT-angiography is the diagnostic test of choice in patients with hemoptysis: 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.

Pulmonary angiography and embolization for severe haemoptysis due to cavitary pulmonary tuberculosis. D Coronal oblique MIP CT reconstruction after embolization showing embolization material coil occluding the Rasmussen’s aneurysm arrow. You can change the settings or obtain more information by clicking here. Computer tomography angiography usually allows pseudoaneurysm diagnosis, localization and characterization and can aid in therapeutic procedure planning.

CT and CT angiography in massive haemoptysis with emphasis on pre-embolization assessment.

This also resulted in successful ramsussen of hemoptysis. This is then gradually replaced by fibrin, resulting in thinning of the arterial wall, pseudoaneurysm formation, and subsequent rupture with hemorrhage. Vascular diseases Tuberculosis Circulatory disease stubs. Bronchial artery embolization using various substances like gel foam, PVA embolization particles, coils, etc.
