Epistaxis Embolization Therapy

Epistaxis, or excessive bleeding from the nose, can be caused by various underlying conditions. In cases of severe bleeding that is not controlled with conventional surgical techniques, endovascular embolization therapy can be performed. In this procedure, a small catheter is advanced under x-ray guidance to the arteries that serve the nose. Small particles are then injected to intentionally plug the arteries and stop the bleeding.
