Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) and Chronic Nosebleeds

Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) and Chronic Nosebleeds 2017-08-31T14:39:04+00:00

Persistent nosebleeds are one of the most common symptoms for HHT patients.1 It is estimated that about 90% of HHT patients will experience nosebleeds during their lifetime.1 The frequency of these nosebleeds can vary significantly from sporadic to multiple episodes per day. The duration and severity of these nosebleeds can also fluctuate significantly and may require repeat intervention by a medical professional who can help to alleviate the bleeding. Epistaxis product solutions that provide greater patient comfort may be important for patients that experience multiple epistaxis episodes, such as those with HHT.
