Pulmonary Artery Aneurysms
Report of a Case Treated by Surgical Intervention
The successful surgical treatment of an aneurysm of the left main pulmonary artery is reported. It appears that, after ligation of the main pulmonary artery, it is desirable not to remove the lung but preserve it as a space occupying organ which will retain some function. Literature on the subject of pulmonary aneurysms is reviewed.
