A Prospective Randomised Controlled Trial of Management of Recurrent Nosebleeds in Children
To determine whether the selective application of a combined treatment regimen of silver nitrate cautery and 4 weeks of Naseptin cream is superior to naseptin treatment alone in the management of recurrent paediatric epistaxis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A disease characterized by the chronic, progressive spread of lesions from New World cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by species of the L. braziliensis complex to the nasal, pharyngeal, and buccal mucosa some time after the appearance of the initial cutaneous lesion. Nasal obstruction and epistaxis are frequent presenting symptoms.
Nasal Lavage Fluid
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.
Nasal Provocation Tests
Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.
Diagnostic measurement of the nose and its cavity through acoustic reflections. Used to measure nasal anatomical landmarks, nasal septal deviation, and nasal airway changes in response to allergen provocation tests (NASAL PROVOCATION TESTS).
Purpose: This study is aimed to be a prospective clinical trial to investigate the efficacy of a chitosan-coated nasal packing (ChitoFlex® used in conjunction with the HemCon Nasal Plug)...
This is a blind trial to test if Surgiflo is effective in posterior epistaxis. After the investigators see than anterior tamponade is not effective stopping epistaxis, the investigators tr...
Epistaxis is a common problem among people of all ages and backgrounds. However, occasionally epistaxis can be severe enough to require emergency room admission. Among the treatment option...
Cutaneous scarring after elective surgery is a concern for surgeons of all types, perhaps even more so to plastic surgeons. Cautery is often used on the "cut" setting to make or extend in...
The purpose of this study is to determine recurrence rates of nodular Basal Cell Carcinomas on the face removed with curettage and electrodessication (cautery) followed by application of I...
BACKGROUND: Epistaxis is the most common symptom in patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). In severely affected cases, cessation of the nasal airflow seems to be the only long-term...
Background:There is wide variation in UK prescribing practice regarding prophylactic antibiotics for nasal packing in spontaneous epistaxis. There are few published cases of infective complications in...
Objectives:To investigate common origins of intractable epistaxis, and the efficacy of endoscopic management.Methods:Retrospective study of 265 patients with uncontrolled idiopathic epistaxis presenti...
Eruption of supernumerary teeth into the nasal cavity is a rare pathological condition. Identification of such teeth is important as they can sometimes cause significant morbidity. This report describ...
Objective:To evaluate endoscopic cauterisation of the sphenopalatine neurovascular bundle, as treatment for intractable posterior epistaxis, with regard to efficacy, safety and post-operative sequelae...
