Haemorrhage from the maxillary artery can be life-threatening. The literature related to ligation of the external carotid artery at various levels to control such haemorrhage is reviewed and a case presented where a severe haemorrhage from the maxillary artery was controlled by ligation of the external carotid artery distal to the posterior auricular/occipital trunk.
