Abstract

Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm is often a fatal event without immediate intervention for the associated hemorrhagic shock and impending cardiovascular collapse. We report a case of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm managed with partially occlusive resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (P-REBOA) as a means to gain proximal control, tailor blood pressure goals, while allowing time to obtain access and repair the ruptured aneurysm.
