Authors: Leal-Noval SR, Fernández Pacheco J, Casado Méndez M, Cuenca-Apolo D, Múñoz-Gómez M Abstract INTRODUCTION: . Massive hemorrhage continues to be a treatable cause of death. Its management varies from prefixed ratio-driven administration of blood components to goal-directed therapy based on point-of-care testing and administration of coagulation factor concentrates.

Background Severe bleeding after blunt maxillofacial trauma is a rare but life-threatening event. Non-responders to conventional treatment options with surgically inaccessible bleeding points can be treated by transarterial embolization (TAE) of the extern...
Scabs are signs of healthy healing, forming as protective layers over damaged skin to prevent infection and blood loss.
