County Executive Sent to Hospital for Emergency Surgery

In April of 2010 Howard County Executive Ken Ulman was struck with a mysterious nose bleed. After it became apparent that he could not stop the bleeding himself, he was rushed to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a severe posterior nasal hemorrhage which had caused a significant drop in his blood pressure. The surgery that repaired the ruptured artery was performed by Dr. Dominick Coletti of the Central Maryland Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, P.A. office.

Ulman’s spokesman, Kevein Enright, stated that Dr. Coletti was able to successfully cauterize the bleeding artery. He also claimed that shortly after surgery that Ulman was alert and talking. Ulman was kept at Country General Hospital for observation for another day and was released. Ulman is a 36-year-old Democrat that has been an executive for the County since 2006.

Dr. Coletti is a partner of Central Maryland Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery P.A., and is the former Division Chief and Associate Professor from The University of Maryland department of oral and maxillofacial surgery, R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. Dr. Coletti is a nationally recognized surgeon for his clinical and academic performance, and is one of only 60 national oral and maxillofacial surgeons inducted into the prestigious American College of Surgeons. He is presently on medical staff at Howard County General Hospital, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate.
