While being treated in hospital, he started coughing up blood and mucus, which apparently increased the strain on his lungs, and doctors had started treating him with oxygen tanks.

This kind of clot isn't unheard of in patients, but what was unusual was how intact it was.

A 36-year-old California man has passed away after suffering from chronic heart failure and coughing so severely that he coughed up a part of his lung. His medical history included heart failure with an ejection fraction of 20%, bioprosthetic aortic-valve replacement for bicuspid aortic stenosis, endovascular stenting of an aortic aneurysm, and placement of a permanent pacemaker for complete heart block.

"An Impella ventricular assist device was placed for management of acute heart failure, and a continuous heparin infusion was initiated for systemic anticoagulation".

"We were astonished", Wieselthaler said.

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

Sadly, the patient died from complications of heart failure almost a week later. "It's a curiosity you can't imagine-I mean, this is very, very, very rare".
