PULMONARY ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATION: PERCUTANEOUS OCCLUSION BY VASCULAR PLUG
Keywords:Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation, Vascular plug
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is a congenietal malformationresulting in right to left shunt. In this study we reported a 26 year old male whowas referred for evaluation of central cyanosis, exertional dyspnea and nasalbleed. Past history was significant for transient ischemic attack (TIA). Chest xrayrevealed a mass lesion on left side which was shown to be arterio-venousmalformation on CT- thorax. The patient has undergone a successfulpercutaneous occlusion using a vascular plug.
