The 36-year-old man was admitted to intensive care at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center with chronic heart failure.

The 36-year old man was being treated for a serious heart condition, according to a new report of the case, published November 29 in The New England Journal of Medicine. Fibrinogen is a protein that helps to form blood clots, and higher levels of it allowed the man's blood clot to remain intact when he coughed it out.

The six-inch-wide blood clot that was coughed up by an unnamed patient in the near-perfect shape of his right bronchial tree.

Sadly, although he felt better after the clot was out of his lungs, and coughed up no further clots, the condition of his heart was too severe. In addition, he had a bicuspid aortic valve.

Earlier in the hospital in the United Kingdom killed a patient during a simple procedure.

The patient was immediately intubated and doctors performed a bronchoscopy, which allows doctors to look at the lungs and air passages.

This incredible medical case was published in the New England journal of Medicine and also given photos of the branch, which is coughed up by the patient.

They discovered that the man had a small amount of blood in the basilar branches, which supply oxygen-rich blood, of the right lower lobe.

However, he died a week later from complications of heart failure-volume overload and poor cardiac output-the article said.
