Paper Abstract

The morphologic changes of the pulmonary artery have been observed by angiography, but angiography shows only the shadows of the changes actually occurring. Recent advances in fiberscopic technology enabled us to observe the coronary artery, great vessels, cardiac chambers and the pulmonary artery by angioscopy4 We report here angioscopic features of the pulmonary artery in patients with pulmonary thromboernbolism, pulmonary hypertension and rheumatic valvular disease.
