• Forty-six transantral maxillary artery ligation cases were compared with 30 controls with regard to the outcome of their treatment of epistaxis. The success rate and the complication rate were higher in the ligated patients. Maxillary artery ligation for severe idiopathic epistaxis is a valid procedure only if injury to the infraorbital nerve is avoided.
