Bronchial artery embolization (BAE) is considered the first choice treatment for hemoptysis. To our knowledge no cases of BAE using a recent ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer agent (Squid) have been previously mentioned. Two cases of BAE for remitting hemoptysis using Squid and polyvinyl alcohol particles are reported in this technical note. The final angiographic control confirmed full exclusion of the target territory in both cases. Both patients felt some chest pain immediately after the embolization, not requiring any medications.

Abstract

Bronchial artery embolization (BAE) is considered the first choice treatment for hemoptysis. To our knowledge no cases of BAE using a recent ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer agent (Squid) have been previously mentioned. Two cases of BAE for remitting hemoptysis using Squid and polyvinyl alcohol particles are reported in this technical note. The final angiographic control confirmed full exclusion of the target territory in both cases. Both patients felt some chest pain immediately after the embolization, not requiring any medications. No more episodes of hemoptysis occurred in the following 3 months after the procedure.
