The article presents a pulmonary artery hypertension examination conducted to a 68-year-old woman. To investigate the cause of this disease, a CT pulmonary angiogram, a cardiac MRI, and a catheter angiogram were performed, its images are showed. It infers that most ruptures of the right pulmonary artery occur in the middle or lower lobe branches and carry a mortality rate up to 50%. Treatment using transcatheter embolisation is recommended.

    Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a frequent finding in migraine patients. The standard technique for PFO diagnosis is actually trans-oesophageal echocardiography (TEE). It requires the injection of a contrast agent unable to pass the pulmonary filter; hence, it is possible to detect a right-to-left...
