In brief: Embolism

Bleeding from hht fall into two categories - minor ie.
Small bleeds from telangectasia on mucosal surfaces like the nose/lips that can be inconvenient but usually stop easily, and potentially life threatening bleeds from avns in the lung, liver or brain. These avns should be screened for on a regular basis once hht has been diagnosed and may need embolization (sealed up from the inside) if found.
