Misra explained that when the lung abnormalities become symptomatic, "we are asked to embolize
them using coils."
Once it was in place, they sent imipenem/cilastatin sodium through the catheter to block, or embolize
, the inflamed blood vessels.
(2) Approximately 75% of described cases are arterial, which tend to embolize
peripherally resulting in ischemia, and 25% are venous, which commonly embolize
centrally to the heart or pulmonary artery.
To the Editor: Septic pulmonary embolism (SPE) is a rare type of nonthrombotic pulmonary embolism, in which, emboli-containing pathogens and purulent material admixed with fibrin thrombus embolize
to the pulmonary artery, causing pulmonary embolism with focal lung infection.
In actuality, the goal of a uterine artery embolization is to embolize
the distal branches of the uterine arteries, which can help with any potential bleeding from the uterus itself during hysterectomy.
In this case, we were able to utilize this balloon occlusion technique to embolize

This incident three months prior was immediately followed with interventional radiology-guided mesenteric angiography and the use of multiple coils to embolize
the anterior division of the pancreaticoduodenal arcade.
The inciting event causing a venous thrombus to detach and embolize
is often unknown , but can be associated with clot propagating maneuvers, as there have been case reports citing tourniquet placement as the initiator of clot migration .
Tumour emboli have also been reported to travel through cardiac defects such as a patent foramen ovale or ventricular septal defect or to embolize
Left nephrectomy was performed due to inability to embolize
the bleeding artery.
A catheter angiogram was performed with a view to identify and embolize
the bleeding vessel.
Thus, the decision was made to embolize
the pseudoaneurysm with liquid N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA).
