Figure 2: Cardiac catheterization. The selective arteriography (a) highlights a common vascular trunk from which both the left and the right bronchial arteries arise. The right bronchial artery is tortuous and dilated with the significant spreading of contrast medium distally. The coil (arrow) is deployed in the distal part of the common vascular trunk achieving a complete embolization of both bronchial arteries (b). The final aortography (c) shows the success of the procedure without the opacification of the embolized bronchial arteries
