Study group discussion: Differentials of epistaxis

What could be the possible cause of a sudden episode of nose bleeding in a patient who has a history of open heart surgery?

It could be because of anticoagulation. Hypertension is also a cause.

Since we are on this topic, any one would like to go over the differentials of epistaxis?

Excessive scratching of nasal area
Anticoagulation meds or any coagulation disorder
Traumatic
Leukemia
ITP
Problems in liver
Rhinosporidiosis
Polyps
Foreign bodies
