Endobronchial stenting is a well-established palliative approach in lung cancer patients with airway obstruction secondary to tumor burden. However endobronchial stenting can be complicated by stent erosion into adjacent vessels. Although most cases of endobronchial stent–related hemoptysis can be treated by stent revision and/or surgical resection, here we present a case managed by endovascular pulmonary arterial stent placement as a last resort option in the management of an iatrogenic bronchovascular fistula in a nonsurgical candidate.
