We describe the case of a young man aged 19 years with a double inlet left ventricle associated with transposition of the great arteries, and a mechanical aortic valve requiring anticoagulation, who presented with massive haemoptysis. At cardiac catheterisation, there were multiple feeder vessels to a bleeding leash surrounding and communicating with his left main bronchus. Despite occlusion of the larger feeder vessels, he continued to have massive haemoptysis. We describe a novel surgical strategy of denuding the peribronchial vessels through a left lateral thoracotomy. This successfully stopped his bleeding.
