Embolization of Nosebleed

Endovascular embolization of nosebleed has evolved to the standard treatment for those nose bleeds that do not respond to conservative treatment methods. It is done via the internal maxillary and facial arteries and by suing embospheres or particles. It is a noninvasive and effective method to stop nose bleeds that have not stopped with compression, cauterization, or other conservative measures.
