Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVM) represent pulmonary vascular anomalies and in majority of cases are congenital in origin. We report a case that presented with predominant complaints of dyspnoea on exertion and cyanosis. Clinical examination revealed a bruit in the left lower interscapular and infrascapular areas which led us to suspect PAVM. The diagnosis was established on the basis of computed tomography (CT) thorax with three-dimensional virtual reconstruction technology (3D VRT… Expand
Endovascular Management of Massive Hemoptysis Secondary to Systemic Collaterals in Previously Treated Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation
TLDR
A case of a 17-year-old male with treated PAVMs and with fresh hemoptysis is presented, attempting to explain the management of such a complication and follow the principles of arteriovenous malformation embolization on the left side. Expand
Peripheral Arteriovenous Malformations
TLDR
No objective criteria have been established for which mode(s) of treatment should be selected for individual patients with AVM, but the three effective modes of treatment currently available are questionable. Expand
Transcatheter occlusion of multiple pulmonary arterio venous malformations
TLDR
A case of an 8-year-old boy with multiple PAVF, who underwent successful transcatheter closure with multiple coils, is described. Expand
Diffuse pulmonary arteriovenous malformations in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia: long-term results of embolization according to the extent of lung involvement.
TLDR
Dyspnea and paradoxical embolism are frequently encountered in HHT patients with diffuse PAVMs and prevention of complications and improvement of dyspnea can be achieved after successful embolization in most patients. Expand
Management of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia patients.
TLDR
The technical complexity of PAVM embolotherapy and the clinical depth needed to adequately provide long-term follow-up care for the proband and their affected family members makes PAVM management of HHT patients an especially rewarding aspect of clinical interventional radiology. Expand
Vein Diameter on Unenhanced Multidetector CT Predicts Reperfusion of Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation after Embolotherapy
TLDR
A diameter of the draining vein of PAVM of 2.5 mm or greater on unenhanced chest MDCT is a strong predictor of reperfusion, and can guide a decision of repeat pulmonary angiogram and embolotherapy. Expand

Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula with bilharzial pulmonary hypertension
TLDR
Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula in the presence of unexplained or uncorrectable pulmonary hypertension may be the safety valve on which life depends and should, therefore, not be resected. Expand
Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations: diagnosis and transcatheter embolotherapy.
TLDR
PAVMs are effectively managed by means of transcatheter embolotherapy, and the interventionalist is best served by having more than one option of treatment, which for PAVM includes both balloons and coils. Expand

TLDR
The fact that telangiectasia may occur in any organ of the body explains the unusual frequency of hematuria, melena, hemoptysis and cerebral vascular hemorrhage in persons with this disease. Expand

TLDR
A 77-year-old man was found to have multiple pulmonary amyloidoma and arteriovenous (AV) fistula of the lungs, which apparently caused the fistula. Expand
