Abstract

Knowledge of bronchial artery anatomy, including the possible locations of anomalous origin, is essential for complete catheter directed embolization for massive hemoptysis. Undetected anomalous bronchial arteries can be a source of failed bronchial artery embolization. We report a case of a common trunk bronchial artery arising from the left vertebral artery and review standard and variant bronchial artery anatomy.
