Educational Pearls:

  • REBOA stands for Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta.
  • The balloon is often placed via femoral artery and placed in the aorta at the level of the heart to increase perfusion to the brain in trauma.
  • Significantly less invasive than a thoracotomy and has less complications of infection.
