The role of embolisation in ENT: an update.
To provide an update on the ever-increasing role that embolisation plays in the practice of otolaryngology.
A literature search was performed during November 2008. The Medline, Embase, PubMed and Cochrane databases were searched. This resulted in 285 papers relevant for review.
The role of embolisation has expanded greatly to include the management of refractory epistaxis, pre-operative preparation of vascular tumours, vascular injuries and as an adjunct in skull base surgery.
