Resumen

We report a 23 years old male admitted to the hospital after a fall from a great altitude with severe trauma. During the second week of hospitalization be presented a severe nosebleed that did not respond to conventional tamponade. A selective angiography was performed and the branches of the internal maxillary artery were embolized in two occasions, stopping the bleeding. The patient was discharged from the hospital after 71 days of hospitalization.
