PURPOSE To compare the effectiveness and safety of superselective bronchial artery embolization with that of nonsuperselective embolization in the control of hemoptysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective case analysis was done for 47 patients with hemoptysis originating from a variety of causes. In 22 patients, embolization was performed superselectively using a microcatheter inserted into the bronchial artery beyond the spinal or mediastinal branches (superselective group).
