Massive hemoptysis successfully treated by modified bronchoscopic balloon tamponade technique.


:A 60-year-old man with massive hemoptysis was treated successfully by modified bronchoscopic balloon tamponade technique. Compared with previously reported techniques, the modified technique requires no special catheter, no complicated maneuver, and is able to be applied to more massive bleeding.
