Hemoptysis treated with Embold™ Fibered​ Coils

In this case study, we explore the treatment of hemoptysis using Embold Fibered Coils. After the patient presented to the emergency room, the team initiated the procedure by inserting a 5 F diagnostic catheter into the pulmonary artery; subsequently, a TruSelect™ Microcatheter was navigated to the site of the pulmonary artery pseudo aneurysm. A total of fourteen Embold Fibered Coils were deployed to successfully embolize the affected area and the patient returned to recovery following the procedure.
