Abstract

We present the successful utilization of REBOA in a case of penetrating abdominal aortic injury.  This allowed for hemorrhagic control and exposure of a large aortic defect at the level of the celiac access, which otherwise would have been difficult to control in an open fashion.  Although use in this specific injury pattern in the literature is limited, REBOA can be a life-saving maneuver.
