HHT is More than a Bleeding Nose – What an ENT Doctor Needs to Know About HHT and Why.

Professor Anette Kjeldsen, Member of the VASCERN HHT Working Group and the HHT Center of Excellence at Odense University Hospital, Denmark,  provides and overview for Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) Doctors in order to help them properly recognize the signs and symptoms of Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT), also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu Syndrome. As ENT doctors are often the first healthcare professionals that HHT patients consult, it is essential for them to be able to identify a potential HHT patient and refer these patients to an HHT Center of Excellence for screening and treatment in order to decrease the progression of disease in the patient.
