Abstract

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation(PAVM) are associated with substantial risks if left untreated. The literature reports a 40-50% incidence of paradoxical embolization. Percutaneous arterial embolization has become the standard treatemtn for PAVM. We report a case of pulmonary arteriovenous malformation successfully treated bytranscatheter embolization using detachable balloons and we also demonstrate long-term follow up CT findings.
