Brief Summary:
Inserting nasal self-packings is a secure method leaving patients more self-confident. We provide a video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaioLYfSJ-E demonstrating how to use nasal self-packings.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Hereditary Haemorrhagic Telangiectasia Procedure: video-assisted nasal self-packing

Detailed Description:
Inserting nasal self-packings is a secure method leaving patients more self-confident. In HHT centers, patients often learn how to use them, but these centers are rare. Providing a video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaioLYfSJ-E demonstrating how to use nasal self-packings may also help patients without access to HHT centers.

Official Title: Evaluation of Video-assisted Instructions of Nasal Self-packing in Patients With Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT)
Actual Study Start Date : January 30, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2020



Intervention Details:
  • Procedure: video-assisted nasal self-packing
    video-assisted nasal self-packing


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of video-assisted teaching [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Evaluation of video-assisted teaching using a questionnaire. Data about using new media (Do you use a smartphone/ tablet (yes/no)? Do you use the internet (e.g. youtube, facebook, instagram...)?) Moreover, patients feeling loosing control (before and after using pneumatic nasal self-packing: how often do have the feeling of losing control (scale form 1 to 5, 1 = very often, 5 = never) and safety (after learning the nasal self-packing with pneumatic tamponades do you feel safe? (scale 1 to 5, 1 = not very safe, 5 = safe) is analyzed. Additional data about number of blood transfusions, hospitalty and doctoral consulation rates (regarding recurrent nosebleeds in the last 12 months: How many bloodtranfusions did you get (because of nosebleeds/ gastrointestinal bleedings/ both)? How often did you see a doctor or needed to be treated in hospital?) is documented.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Analyzing duration of consultation [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    the duration of the consultation and seeing the video is documented and compared to the Duration of consultations in patients with HHT before having uploaded the video
