To Pack or Not to Pack: Inpatient Management of Epistaxis in the Elderly.

Am J Rhinol Allergy 2018 Nov 1;32(6):539-545. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

1 Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, New Jersey.

Background: Epistaxis is common in elderly patients, occasionally necessitating hospitalization for the management of severe bleeds. In this study, we aim to explore the impact of nasal packing versus nonpacking interventions (cauterization, embolization, and ligation) on outcomes and complications of epistaxis hospitalization in the elderly.

Methods: The 2008-2013 National Inpatient Sample was queried for elderly patients (≥65 years) with a primary diagnosis of epistaxis and accompanying procedure codes for anterior and posterior nasal packing or nonpacking interventions. Read More

Improvising a Posterior Nasal Pack with Equipment in a Basic First Aid Kit.

Wilderness Environ Med 2016 Sep 26;27(3):393-6. Epub 2016 Jul 26.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Columbus Regional Health, Columbus, IN.

Posterior epistaxis is a serious condition that can be difficult to treat in a wilderness setting. The initial standard of care involves packing the affected nostril with a 7 to 9 cm nasal pack to tamponade the bleed. These packs are often unavailable outside of the emergency or operating room.

Comparison of outcomes between endoscopic surgery and conventional nasal packing for epistaxis in the posterior fornix of the inferior nasal meatus.

Pak J Med Sci 2015 Nov-Dec;31(6):1361-5

Shi-Ming Chen, Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University, Wuhan, China.

Objective: To investigate the clinical features of epistaxis in the posterior fornix of the inferior nasal meatus and compare the treatment outcomes of endoscopic surgery and conventional nasal packing for this intractable form of epistaxis.

Management of severe epistaxis after Young's procedure: a case report.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2013 Apr 25;3(4):334-7. Epub 2012 Oct 25.

Department of Otology and Laryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02114, USA.

Background: Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is an autosomal dominant disorder affecting multiple organ systems, with epistaxis being the most common manifestation. Multiple procedures have been used for the management of epistaxis in the setting of HHT, including closure of the anterior nares via a Young's procedure. While this procedure results in loss of smell and permanent nasal obstruction, proponents note significant improvement in patient symptomatology. Read More

Is routine nasoendoscopy warranted in epistaxis patients after removal of nasal packing?

Allergy Rhinol (Providence) 2011 Jan;2(1):12-5

Department of Ear, Nose, and Throat, Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, New Cross Hospital, Wolverhampton, WV10 0QP, United Kingdom.

Fiberoptic nasoendoscopy (FNE) is a powerful investigative tool in ear, nose, and throat practice in which its use in the management of epistaxis is varied among clinicians. The practice of assessing the nasal cavity after removal of nasal packs is common but its usefulness has not been evaluated. Therefore, we assessed the benefits of routine FNE after removal of nasal packs in epistaxis patients. Read More

Transport of a patient with massive traumatic epistaxis using a cricket helmet and posterior nasal packing.

Ear Nose Throat J 2009 Jun;88(6):967-8

Department of Surgery, Lady Willingdon Hospital, Manali Kullu District, Himachal Pradesh 175 131 India.

In developing countries, when patients with traumatic epistaxis cannot be adequately treated at their local medical facility and require further treatment at a distant tertiary care center, it is important that bleeding be controlled before their transport. We describe a patient with a traumatic anterior ethmoidal artery bleed who needed to be taken to a tertiary care center 8 hours away for endoscopic ablation, which was not available at our hospital. The inflated balloon of an 18-Fr Foley catheter attached to the face guard of a cricket helmet was used as a posterior nasal pack. Read More

Update on epistaxis.

Curr Opin Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2007 Jun;15(3):180-3

Department of Surgery, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.

Purpose Of Review: The treatment of epistaxis has undergone significant changes in recent years. Gone are the days when patients had an uncomfortable posterior nasal pack inserted then spent several days on the ward only to bleed again on its removal. New packing devices, ingenious haemostatic agents and endoscopic surgical approaches have been developed to provide a variety of effective and well-tolerated treatment options. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology, Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, affiliated to the Sakler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Israel and Israel National Hemophilia Center, Sheba Medical Center, Tel-Hashomer, Israel.

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the haemostatic efficacy of fibrin sealant in patients with hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) or Rendu-Osler-Weber disease suffering epistaxis. A retrospective observational study of patients with HHT who were admitted to an emergency room for anterior or posterior epistaxis during May 2000-March 2003. A total of 24 patients were evaluated, of whom 15 were managed with foam nasal packing during May 2000-March 2002 and another nine were treated during March 2002-March 2003 with 0. Read More

How to perform adequate nasal packing in posterior epistaxis with difficult access.

Rhinology 2003 Sep;41(3):182-3

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Inadequate nasal packing in the treatment of posterior epistaxis can result in an increase in patient morbidity and mortality, and also hospital expenditure. The presence of a septal spur or septal deviation anterior to the bleeding may prevent sufficient local pressure over the bleeding point with a ribbon gauze pack. A modified Jobson-Horne probe can be used to ensure a tight ribbon gauze application over the bleeding point behind the septal spur or deviation. Read More

J Laryngol Otol 1999 Jun;113(6):561-3

Department of ENT, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK.

A seven-year-old child sustained a fracture of her basisphenoid resulting in profuse, life-threatening haemorrhage which could not be controlled with a post-nasal pack. The fracture site was identified using rigid endoscopy and packed with oxidized cellulose, resulting in immediate control of the haemorrhage. The use of the nasal endoscope in the management of posterior epistaxis is discussed. Read More

[Monopolar endoscopic coagulation in posterior epistaxis].

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 1991 May-Jun;42(3):177-9

Clínica Universitaria de ORL, Hospital St. Elisabeth de Bochum.

Most cases of severe nasal bleeding are treated by anterior and posterior packing of the nose. The permanence of the packing makes necessary an antibiotic therapy and sedation of restless patients. Extraction of the packs may lead to new bleedings from original vessel, but also from granulation tissue which may grow onto the nasal pack. Read More

Authors:
J Heermann

HNO 1986 May;34(5):208-15

For the past 25 years we have been able to control severe epistaxis in all patients by an intranasal procedure. If the source of bleeding in patients with epistaxis from the upper part of the nose cannot be seen during the acute phase, a combined anterior-posterior nasal pack is inserted and left in place for three days. Should bleeding persist or recur after removal of the packing we resect the superior nasal septum to expose the bleeding point in the anterior area of the cribriform plate. Read More
