Abstract

In most cases of posterior epistaxis, the terminal branches of the internal maxillary artery (IMA) - principally the sphenopalatine artery - are believed to be the source of hemorrhage. However, we recently treated three patients in which unexpected or aberrant vascular anatomy resulted in persistent posterior epistaxis.
