Hemoptysis


Modern & effective technique to stop life-threatening hemoptysis (Coughing of blood)

There are many disorders that can cause hemoptysis Tuberculosis is the most common cause. Other causes are bronchitis, bronchiectasis, vascular disorders, pulmonary AVM, trauma. Whatever the suspected cause, development of moderate and massive hemoptysis (generally more than about 1 cup, in 24 hours) should always be brought to the attention of a medical doctor, because the mortality rate for patients with massive hemoptysis can be as high as 75%. Most patients die from lack of oxygen due to too much blood in the airways.

An effective non-surgical treatment for stopping life-threatening massive and moderate hemoptysis is available for more than a decade but now becoming known to general public and physicians. This technique is called “Bronchial Artery Embolization” and is an Interventional Radiological procedure which is a highly sophisticated advanced medical technique that replaces complicated and painful open surgical procedures.

It involves injecting very small particles directly into the artery supplying the segments of the lungs through tubes and catheters introduced from the groin.  It is much easier for the patient because it does not require a surgical incision, done under local anesthesia, less risky, almost painless and have markedly shorter recovery periods (1-2 days). In all the patients bleeding stopped immediately after the procedure.
