Abstract

Haemoptysis is a common feature of adults with congenitally malformed hearts suffering from Eisenmenger's syndrome. While this situation is often treated conservatively, it may not settle with such treatment. A further therapeutic option for these patients is embolisation of appropriate systemic-to-pulmonary collateral arteries. We discuss here our experience in treating two such patients with different underlying anatomical substrates.
