New Device for the Management of Postnasal Epistaxis by Balloon Tamponade

New Device for the Management of Postnasal Epistaxis by Balloon Tamponade Abstract Posterior epistaxis may be managed by means of a Foley catheter used in place of traditional posterior packing. The ease and comfort of this method have resulted in an ever-increasing frequency of application. Usual complications of postnasal Foley balloon tamponade involve trauma to the exterior of the nose, which is the conventional site of fixation of the Foley catheter. A simply constructed aluminum-tripod face mask provides superior tractionfixation to the Foley catheter, bypassing the exterior of the nose entirely and dissipating the force of countertraction over the face.

Abstract

Abstract Posterior epistaxis may be managed by means of a Foley catheter used in place of traditional posterior packing. The ease and comfort of this method have resulted in an ever-increasing frequency of application. Usual complications of postnasal Foley balloon tamponade involve trauma to the exterior of the nose, which is the conventional site of fixation of the Foley catheter. A simply constructed aluminum-tripod face mask provides superior tractionfixation to the Foley catheter, bypassing the exterior of the nose entirely and dissipating the force of countertraction over the face.
