Dr Asim P A, Dr. Prathap R

Abstract :

 INTRODUCTION

Bleeding from the nose called as epistaxis, it is a common clinical condition. About 60% of people worldwide experience the
1, 2 episode of epistaxis at least once in life time, with less than 10% of these requiring medical attention .
Only 6% of the cases need specialized intervention to control bleeding and only 1% requires hospitalization, with mortality rate
3 below 0.01%68. It has been estimated that nose bleeds affect 108 per 100,000 population per year .
AIMS OF THE STUDY
1. To assess the role of rigid nasal endoscopy in diagnosis and management of epistaxis.
2. To assess the exact site of epistaxis in same patients by rigid nasal endoscopy.
CONCLUSION
Nasal endoscopy helps not only in the localization of the bleeding points situated especially in the posterior and lateral part of the
nose but also in its treatment without any complications.
