This case presents an unusually late complication of oesophagectomy 20-years post-surgery, with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Further investigation revealed a gastric conduit ulcer eroding into the lower lobe of the right lung, forming a fistula with a basal branch of the right pulmonary artery. Upon successful embolisation, the HydroCoil® was visible on endoscopy. This case highlights the need for lifetime proton pump inhibitor cover post-oesophagectomy and demonstrates that when approaching uncommon presentations of common problems, careful consideration to treatment technique is essential.
