Title: Oxymetazoline in the treatment of posterior epistaxis.
Authors: Doo, G
Johnson, D S
Issue Date: Aug 1999
Abstract: In this retrospective study, 36 patients were given oxymetazoline as a first step in treatment for posterior epistaxis. In 75% of the cases, epistaxis was effectively treated with oxymetazoline with no recurrent bleeding. All cases with recurrence resolved with continued administration of oxymetazoline. The results of this study propose a pharmacologic intervention for the treatment of posterior epistaxis.
