Six patients with hemoptysis were treated by endobronchial sealing, with n-butyl cyanoacrylate, of the bleeding segment or subsegment. There was an immediate arrest of bleeding without any recurrence for a mean follow-up period of 127 (± 67.17) days. Endobronchial sealing appears to be an effective method of managing hemoptysis.
