Control Of Bleeding, Resuscitation, Arterial Occlusion System
Smaller size. Without compromise.
Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta is a procedure that is used to temporarily occlude large blood vessels. It is a tool in the broader Endovascular Resuscitation and Trauma Management (EVTM) concept.
REBOA is used in emergency situations when patients require hemodynamic support to maintain blood flow to the brain and heart. This tool acts as a bridge to definitive care.
REBOA can be applied in situations such as non-compressible torso hemorrhage in trauma, postpartum hemorrhage, and gastrointestinal hemorrhage. It is currently also being investigated for organ transplantation and nontraumatic cardiac arrest.
REBOA has been performed mostly in-hospital but has also been used in pre-hospital settings and far forward military environments.
REBOA is achieved by minimally invasively deploying an endovascular occlusion balloon in the aorta to temporarily stem blood flow below the device and increase blood flow above to the brain and heart.
It is important to be able to deploy REBOA quickly and easily to maximize its benefit, enable definitive treatment, and be removed with minimal trace to lessen the risk of REBOA complications.
