Incredible Blood Clot Coughed Up Intact Stumps Doctors

The blood clot coughed up by a man

On Tuesday, the widely respected journal shared a truly incredible case: a 36-year-old man with aggressive end-stage heart failure had a coughing fit so extreme that he coughed up a six-inch wide blood clot.

The doctors treating the patient were "astonished" after they unfurled the clot to find it had retained the shape of the lung pathway from which it came.

The mysterious, cherry-red cast resembled a piece of coral, and an image of it has gone viral after appearing in The New England Journal of Medicine.

Per the Atlantic, Wieselthaler said that the use of the pump requires anticoagulants to "make the blood thinner and prevent clots from forming", though that comes with the risk of uncontrolled internal bleeding.

According to a case report from the New England Journal of Medicine published on November 29, during a particularly violent coughing spell, the man coughed up his right bronchial tree - all intact.

The anti-coagulants the man was taking forced blood out of his pulmonary system and into his right lung.

"An Impella ventricular assist device was placed for management of acute heart failure, and a continuous heparin infusion was initiated for systemic anticoagulation". "It's a curiosity you can't imagine-I mean, this is very, very, very rare".

"The right bronchial tree consists of three segmental branches in the upper lobe, two segmental branches in the middle lobe, and five segmental branches in the lower lobe", the case report's authors wrote. Don't say we didn't warn you.

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

Despite the doctor's best efforts and the assistance of a ventrical device, the man died from heart failure a week later.

After being supplied oxygen via a tube, the man's coughing ceased two days later, leading to the removal of the tube.

The man coughed up the right bronchial tree.
