Abstract

This paper describes two alternatives to a conventional anterior-posterior pack for control of posterior epistaxis. Both methods involve occluding the posterior choana with finger-cot packs introduced through the anterior nares. These have proved effective in controlling bleeding with significantly reduced morbidity.
