Correlation and interventional embolization therapy of posterior intercostal arteries-induced hemoptysis

Y. P. Chen, Chen, Y. G., Jiang, F., and Chen, J. M., Correlation and interventional embolization therapy of posterior intercostal arteries-induced hemoptysis, vol. 13, pp. 4252-4259, 2014.

The incidence of posterior intercostal arteries-induced hemoptysis, its correlation with primary diseases, and the value of interventional embolization therapy were investigated. Clinical data, multislice spiral computed tomography (MSCT), digital subtraction angiography (DSA), and other imaging data of 143 cases of hemoptysis were retrospectively analyzed. After the offending vessels were subjected to interventional embolization therapy, patients were followed-up for observations of clinical efficacies and complications.
