This article is a review of the literature on epistaxis and its treatment. Data were collected from MedLine until mid September 2005, and from others readings and books. Its first goal was to present to the Belgian ENT practitioners an overview, as complete as possible, of the modern concepts in etiologies, medical, conservative, surgical (including embolization), and adjunctive therapies of epistaxis. All these topics are discussed and commented, from a medico-surgical point of view, and also from a cost effectiveness one.
