Abstract

We present a case with asymptomatic mediastinal bronchial artery aneurysm at the origin of the left bronchial artery. This bronchial artery aneurysm was successfully treated with percutaneous transluminal coil embolization. Complete embolization of the feeding artery and tributaries from the aneurysm is the key to successful isolation of a large bronchial artery aneurysm from the circulation. Percutaneous transluminal embolization is one of the treatment options for a patient with asymptomatic, incidentally-identified bronchial artery aneurysm.
