Hemoptysis is a life-threatening episode of respiratory disease. By means of every possible treatment, hemostasis should be obtained to secure the airway as well as to prevent blood loss. We describe an emergent pneumonectomy for massive hemoptysis from destroyed lung in a patient with previous thoracoplasty. After prolonged ventilation support postoperatively, the patient with compromised lung function recovered well.
