Treatment for epistaxis in patients with Osler's Disease: Scraping nasal mucosa with a curette


, : Treatment for epistaxis in patients with Osler's Disease: Scraping nasal mucosa with a curette. Jibi Inkoka Tokeibu Geka 75(9): 639-643, August

Intranasal dermoplasty, laser photocoagulation, and the administration of estorogen have been used to control epistaxis associated with Osler's disease. We treated two patients who had severe epistaxis due to Osler's disease with scraping the nasal mucosa with a curette. It decreased frequency and severity of the epistaxis. As a minimally invasive modality which is able to be performed in outpatient basis and to be repeated when necessary is required for the treatment of the patients with Osler's disease, scraping the nasal mucosa with a curette appears to be a useful procedure.
