It is estimated that epistaxis results in 4.5 million emergency department visits per year throughout the United States. Due to the adverse effects of standard treatment options for epista...
Epistaxis is a very frequent emergency among adults and often needs specialised treatment in an ENT-department. Among others, atherosclerosis is often named as a reason for an increased ri...
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...
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...
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)...
Epistaxis is a common problem during pregnancy. Few cases of severe epistaxis, not associated with nasal lesions or clotting disorders, were described in the literature. We reported a case of severe e...
There is a paucity of high-quality evidence relating to the management of epistaxis severe enough to require admission to a hospital. Previous studies of interventions for epistaxis have suffered from...
Epistaxis is one of the more common reasons for emergency room visits. The main risk factor for epistaxis is anticoagulant therapy. Until recently, the main culprit was oral intake of a vitamin K anta...
Epistaxis is a common reason for patients to present to the Emergency Department (ED), reflecting 1 out of every 200 ED visits in the United States. While many cases of epistaxis are self-limiting, th...
Epistaxis is the most frequent clinical manifestation of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). Several topical, systemic, and surgical treatments have been tried, but none have been completely ...
The use of balloon CATHETERS to remove emboli by retraction of the balloon that is inflated behind the EMBOLUS.
A balloon-assisted enteroscopy utilizing a flexible endoscope with one overtube balloon control unit.
Widening of a stenosed HEART VALVE by the insertion of a balloon CATHETER into the valve and inflation of the balloon.
Counterpulsation in which a pumping unit synchronized with the patient's electrocardiogram rapidly fills a balloon in the aorta with helium or carbon dioxide in early diastole and evacuates the balloon at the onset of systole. As the balloon inflates, it raises aortic diastolic pressure, and as it deflates, it lowers aortic systolic pressure. The result is a decrease in left ventricular work and increased myocardial and peripheral perfusion.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
