A few arise from posterior arteries and require anterior-posterior nasal packing and a referral.

Although less common, intractable anterior epistaxis may be controlled by anterior ethmoid artery ligation once this taponamifnto is identified as the primary source. Careful dissection of the nasal cavity is required to locate the site of hemorrhage and to identify any predisposing conditions. Arterial embolization is a treatment of choice for severe refractory epistaxis and some hemorrhages. Although numerous publications have reported the cases of initial epistaxis caused by nasotracheal intubation, recurrent epistaxis was reported rarely.

Multiple linear regressions with backwards elimination was used to derive the predictive model. Racing records and reported epistaxis occurrences were acquired forhorses entered in taponamineto and official barrier trials from 1 August until 22 February Of 15 patients, the epistaxis was caused by injury in 9 and by surgery of nasal or paranasal sinus in 6.

HHT2 is associated with more severe epistaxis and a subsequent higher rate of interventions, requiring more aggressive therapy as compared to HHT1.

Epistaxis by Alejandra Saer on Prezi

Severity of epistaxis was valued using epistaxis severity score ESS before and 3 months after initiating therapy. Las epistaxis y la hemorragia gingival son poco frecuentes.


We propose the treatment procedure for refractory epistaxis. The objective of taponzmiento study was to provide insight into both genetic and non-genetic factors that may contribute to the expression of epistaxis in the Australian Thoroughbred racing population.

After repeat posterior packing, hemostasis was achieved. Epistaxis is a common condition that can be associated with significant morbidity, and it places a considerable burden on our healthcare system. Fifty-eight patients presenting with recurrent anterior epistaxis were treated using potassium titanyl phosphate laser Dermastat. VAS scores are purely subjective, and a potential shortcoming of the ESS is that it is based on self-reported anamnestic bleeding data.

His medical history included frequent and easy bruising. Treatment with atomoxetine controlled the patient’s symptoms and led to a remission of epistaxis. In this study, we reviewed consecutive patients treated over a 4 year period by the senior author to evaluate the incidence, risk factors, etiology and management of immediate and delayed post-transsphenoidal epistaxis.

Supersoft platinum microcoils with smallest diameters were used as the sole embolic agent in all cases. His numerous episodes of epistaxis were incited by chronic nose-picking and strong nose-blowing, practices that he continued to engage in despite repeated medical advice to stop. Severity of epistaxis ranges from occasional low-volume bleeding to frequent large-volume hemorrhage. To compare the outcome of children with anterior epistaxis treated intraoperatively with either bipolar electrocautery or silver nitrate chemical cautery.

Several examples are documented. They were randomly assigned into one of two interventional groups, where 50 children were treated with oral propranolol propranolol treatment group and another 50 children were treated with conventional silver nitrate cautery cauterization treatment group for their epistaxis. Merocel and Rapid Rhino nasal packs are often successfully used. Two patients had severe epistaxis following transnasal biopsy.


Nine hundred respondents from 21 countries were included. An outcomes analysis of anterior epistaxis management in the emergency department. After embolization, satisfactory results were achieved immediately in 55 cases.

A case of recurrent progressively severe ulceration secondary to erosive lichen planus is reported. The mean age was Thus, individualized coping strategies are required.

A retrospective case series study was conducted.

Is antibiotic prophylaxis in nasal packing for anterior epistaxis needed?

Recurrent epistaxis as a manifestation of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia HHT is usually difficult to control. Propranolol was given at a dose of 1.

Early and Late Recurrent Epistaxis Admissions: The prevalence of hypertension among patients with epistaxis was Patients with massive epistaxis or recurrent epistaxis after craniofacial trauma should undergo CT angiography CTA or DSA examination so as to get proper diagnosis and treatment as early as possible.

Epistaxis na een schedeltrauma. Patients in both the groups were managed by nasal packs. The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy of Nd: Due to the severity and recurrence of thyrotoxicosis, surgical resection of the thyroid gland was performed to prevent wnterior thyrotoxic storm.
