Abstract

Our results suggest that corresponding subclavian artery angiography should be performed after the hemorrhagic branches of descending aorta artery have been embolized for hemoptysis due to pulmonary tuberculosis, especially in cases with failed embolization, or complicated with severe pulmonary fibrosis, cavity formation, aspergilloma, pleural thickening, or postoperative thorax. The hemorrhagic arteries shown by subclavian artery angiography must be embolized.
