Endoscopic Cauterization of bleeding points in nasal bleeding.

It's better to look inside the nose before packing the nose with help of nasal endoscope. If bleeding is localized especially in form of  spurter, then immediate cauterization is useful. In cases of chronic renal failure or other chronic medical illness where bleeding is diffuse, cauterization may not be beneficial and keeping a gel foam or keeping merocel over diffuse bleeder will stop the bleeding. Gel foam may not need to be removed as it dissolves soon.

FAQs about Tongue Tie

First Point: Type of Anaesthesia: I often get phone calls where parents ask the question whether the surgery will be done in local or general anaesthesia. Most often the patient is small kid and the site to be operated is very vascular (full of bleeding vessels). So, its is safer to operate under general anaesthesia as this will protect his wind pipe getting choked with blood and surgeon can carry the procedure as planned.
