Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is a rare anomalous direct communication between the pulmonary artery and vein with a considerable risk of serious complications such as cerebral thromboembolism or abscess and pulmonary hemorrhage. Although the past, surgical resection such as lobectomy was mostly used to treat PAVM, the recent development of endovascular treatment has made it a primary consideration to perform transcatheter embolization using coils or detachable balloons. We report a case of successful transcatheter embolization of giant PAVM with the second generation Amplatzer vascular plug II as a new self-expanding device.
