Acute Management of Massive Epistaxis After Nasotracheal Extubation.
Two patients who experienced severe unanticipated nasal bleeding immediately after extubation after a surgical procedure for oral cancer and another after restorative dental treatment were treated with a Foley balloon catheter used to pack the posterior nasal cavity.
Lipid keratopathy and septal abscess
Electrocautery of epistaxis should be performed carefully during hemostasis, and there should be careful follow-up after the procedure to detect the occurrence of septal hematoma or sepsis, since lipid keratopathy is difficult to treat once it occurs.
An image-guided (CT) assessment of a new asymmetric balloon for the treatment of epistaxis
An image-guided assessment of the efficacy of the CAVI-T™ balloon to compress the sphenopalatine artery (SPA) on cadaver heads, for the management of epistaxis and the deployment and stability of this balloon according to the volume injected into the nasal cavity was performed.


An update on epistaxis.
Epistaxis is often a simple and readily treatable condition, however, given the potential consequences of a significant bleed, GPs should have an understanding of the causes, potential risks and emergency management.

Pazopanib effective for bevacizumab‐unresponsive epistaxis in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia
This is the first report on the efficacy of pazopanib with high selectivity for abrogating VEGF receptor‐2 signaling in HHT, and needs to be explored further.

Topical tranexamic acid may have a role in the treatment of anterior epistaxis in select ED patients, though additional studies are needed to confirm its role in treatment algorithms.
Contemporary Management Strategies for Epistaxis
■ Thorough knowledge of the nasal vascular anatomy is paramount for the evaluation and management of epistaxis.
BET 2: Routine coagulation testing in adult patients with epistaxis
It is concluded that coagulation studies are only indicated in adults with epistaxis if the history suggests a potential cause for coagulopathy.
