Özet

Objectives: Hemoptysis is an alarming symptom. It may cause some severe life-threatening complications. Hypertrophic and fragile bronchial artery causes hemoptysis and occurs mostly in bronchiectasis, sarcoidosis, active or sequelae tuberculosis, aspergilloma, lung cancer or cystic fibrosis. Bronchial artery embolization is one of the angiographic methods used in diagnosis and treatment for years performed by radiologists. Hemoptysis is used mostly in patients with hemoptysis. Using this method, surgical management with high mortality and morbidity rates can be avoided or better conditions for surgery can be provided via stopping hemorrhage before surgery. We aim to share the experiences of our hospital about patients who underwent bronchial artery embolization and compare our results with the literature.
