Therapeutic embolization for control of epistaxis in a patient with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.

Author information

Department of Radiology, Eye and Ear Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA.


This article describes a woman with hemorrhagic telangiectasia, or Osler-Weber-Rendu disease, with recurrent nosebleeds despite prior septal dermoplasty and laser treatments. Telangiectasias were clearly shown at the time of angiography. Embolization of abnormal vessels on both sides resulted in cessation of epistaxis for many months. Bilateral studies are important, even when the epistaxis seems to be unilateral.
