Abstract

It is estimated that 60% of the population experiences epistaxis at least once in a lifetime, and that approximately 6% of these patients require treatment. We discuss the risks and benefits of an endovascular approach in our experience. We believe this option is often offered too late. By following basic rules the procedure is very safe and highly effective.
