Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVM) are rare vascular malformation, having direct communication between a pulmonary artery and pulmonary vein, bypassing intervening capillary bed. Traditionally, minimally invasive, endovascular Interventional treatment using coils has been the treatment of choice for PAVM. Our case report highlights emerging role of vascular plug in treating PAVM. Vascular plug have advantage of complete cessation of blood flow to aneurysmal sac along with decreased chances of recurrence or persistence of PAVM.
