PURPOSE To determine the safety and efficacy of internal maxillary artery (IMA) and facial artery polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) embolization for treatment of refractory idiopathic epistaxis. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 1998-2011, 84 patients were referred for endovascular treatment of intractable idiopathic epistaxis. PVA (range, 180-300 μM) particles were used in all cases. One case required microcoils to prevent nontarget embolization. Medical records were reviewed for early recurrences and… CONTINUE READING
