Abstract: Haemoptysis may occur in patients with tetralogy of Fallot and major aorto-pulmonary collateral arteries. We describe such a patient in whom bleeding from a major aorto-pulmonary collateral artery produced severe pulmonary haemorrhage. Interventional closure of the artery could not be performed because it perfused the native pulmonary arteries. Instead, we inserted a conduit between the right ventricle and the native pulmonary arteries, followed by percutaneous closure of the collateral artery. Our patient demonstrates the increasing necessity for combined surgical and interventional procedures.
