Control of the bleeding was immediately succeeded on 14 patients. Two patients had recurrent but less severe bleeding postoperatively and needed nasal packing for a few days. The cause of the bleeding was the first time a nasopharyngeal carcinoma (ligation of the internal maxillary artery) and the second time recurrent spontaneous epistaxis (ligation of the external carotid artery).
Complications were noticed on two patients: a palsy of the hypoglossal nerve, which resolved spontaneously on a patient undergone ligation of the external carotid artery and a transient ophthalmoplegia on a patient, undergone ligation of the internal maxillary artery under local anesthesia, obviously because of diffusion of xylocaine solution to the orbit through the intraorbital fissure.
