A 58-year-old female on Plavix presented to the ER with recurrent left-sided epistaxis after two prior endoscopic control of epistaxis at an outside hospital.  The patient’s hemoglobin and hematocrit at presentation were 8.3 gm/dL and 25.4%.  Given the unilateral presentation, antiplatelet therapy, and recently failed endoscopic control, the patient was taken to the operating room for transnasal endoscopic sphenopalatine artery ligation (TESPAL) with bipolar cautery.
