Nasal mucosa is rich in vessels and more prone to bleeding when damaged.
Most commonly, the bleeding is local resulting from the arterial hypertension, injury or inflammation.
A typical source of bleeding is the frontal part of nasal cavity, also called Kisselbach`s plexus.
An excellent tool for treatment of this type of bleeding is diode laser.
It is used to painlessly coagulate bleeding vessels.
After this procedure, patient does not require nasal tamponade which can be often very uncomfortable for the patient.
However, it is advised to hydrate and lubricate nasal cavity and mucosa for 7-14 days after the procedure.
