US Man Coughs Up Blood Clot ‘Cast’ of His Lung

Man coughs up perfectly intact ‘blood sculpture’ of his lung

Doctors speculated the clot stayed intact due to a higher-than-usual concentration of a particular protein component of blood plasma, caused by the man's infection, which could have made the blood in his airways unusually rubbery.

On Monday, the New England Journal of Medicine tweeted a startling picture as part of its "Images in Clinical Medicine" photo series, which features photos of medical anomalies. "So with all these patients, you have to give them anticoagulants to make the blood thinner and prevent clots from forming".

"During an extreme bout of coughing, the patient spontaneously expectorated an intact cast of the right bronchial tree", the doctors say.

Georg Wieselthaler, a transplant and pulmonary surgeon at the University of California at San Francisco told the Atlantic: "We were astonished". "It's a curiosity you can't imagine-I mean, this is very, very, very rare", he said in a The Atlantic report.

A man who went into the hospital with heart problems ended up literally coughing up a lung.

A 36-year-old man was admitted to the ICU with an acute exacerbation of chronic #heartfailure.

‘Captain Marvel’ trailer: Brie Larson packs a punch
In it, we see that Carol Danvers, as a Kree soldier, arrives in "90s Los Angeles, where she is hunting for Skrulls". Memories of her friend Maria Rambeau ( Lashana Lynch ) and her past life on Earth keep bubbling up.

The right bronchial tree consists of three segmental branches in the lung's upper lobe, two segmental branches in the middle lobe, and five segmental branches in the lower lobe. These medications are what caused the patient's blood to eventually break out of the network and into the lower right lung-due to the clotting agents not being able to fix cracks in the system.

However, doctors said the patient died a week later from heart failure complications.

The 36-year-old patient was in intensive care.

The man was reportedly "extubated" two days after the incident and suffered no further instances of coughing up blood.

Sadly, despite the best efforts of the medical team, the man died a week after coughing up the bronchial tube cast.
