Catheters, Nasal, Hemostatic
Definition : Nasal catheters designed to control nose bleeding (epistaxis). These catheters usually consist of a single-lumen catheter with a balloon attached near its distal tip. Some of these catheters include a sponge and an integral airway that allows patient breath while the catheter is in place. Some other nasal hemostatic catheters consist of a double-lumen catheter with a balloon attached to each distal end to be used simultaneously in both nasal cavities. Double-balloon hemostatic nasal catheters have also been used for stabilization of zygomatic arch fractures.
