Spontant rumperet bronkialarterieaneurisme

Jonas Munch Nielsen, Mats Lindh, Rolf Steffensen

Abstract

Ruptured bronchial artery aneurysm (BAA) is a rare but potentially life-threatening condition. In this case report, a 73-year-old man was admitted to hospital due to acute onset of retrosternal chest pain radiating to the back. A CT and a selective bronchial artery angiography revealed a ruptured BAA, which was initially coiled, and haemostasis was secured with a microvascular plug. The post-operative course was without complications, and the patient was discharged after two days.
