Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary artery aneurysms are rare and often arise in the left main trunk. Because they are uncommon, standardized treatment and clinical management are not clearly established. We present the case of a pulmonary artery aneurysm arising intraparenchymally and its surgical reconstruction using autologous pericardium. In terms of preserving pulmonary function, this procedure is effective compared with surgical procedures such as removal of part of the lungs.
