Terminology and Classification

The sphenopalatine artery has several branches and in many texts the descriptions of its ligation only include its anterior branch. It is important to differentiate between ligation of the anterior branch of the sphenopalatine artery and ligation of all its branches. They all come out through the sphenopalatine foramen (Fig. 14.17a-c).
