PURPOSE To retrospectively compare safety and effectiveness of embolic agents polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles versus n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) for bronchial artery embolization (BAE) for control of hemoptysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approved this retrospective study; informed consent was waived. From January 2005 to December 2008, 406 patients (242 men, 164 women; age range, 6-92 years) with major hemoptysis underwent BAE by using PVA particles (n = 293) or… CONTINUE READING
