Fixing a lung malformation

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM)

  • Angiogram of the arteries and veins of the right lung.
  • The catheter inserted into a vein from the groin. It passes up through the inferior vena cava, and through two heart chambers in the lung.
  • If treated it would have to be open heart surgery, but through interventional radiology it can be done through a minimally invasive procedure done by a catheter.
