Abstract

Recent advances in nasal endoscopy and arterial embolization have improved the treatment of severe posterior epistaxis. This report reviews the therapeutic options, including a case of epistaxis that did not respond to nasal packing but was successfully controlled with superselective arterial embolization. The discussion includes an outline of potential complications of epistaxis treatment, including a case of nasal septal perforation.
