ESPINOZA G, Ricardo et al. Massive epistaxis associated to trauma treated with selective embolization.: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 1999, vol.127, n.10, pp.1236-1239. ISSN 0034-9887.

We report a 23 years old male admitted to the hospital after a fall from a great altitude with severe trauma. During the second week of hospitalization he presented a severe nosebleed that did not respond to conventional tamponade. A selective angiography was performed and the branches of the internal maxillary artery were embolized in two occasions, stopping the bleeding. The patient was discharged from the hospital after 71 days of hospitalization.
