Transcatheter occlusion of coronary to bronchial anastomosis by detachable balloon combined with coronary angioplasty at same procedure.

By J F Reidy, E Sowton and D N Ross


The first case of non-operative occlusion of a large coronary to bronchial anastomosis is described. The patient who had severe angina had also a critical stenosis of the anterior descending coronary artery which was successfully dilated by an angioplasty procedure.
