Abstract

Although resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a useful technique for achieving temporary hemostasis until radical hemostasis is achieved, it is necessary to understand and learn its correct use to avoid complications. The procedure of REBOA preparation, insertion, balloon inflation and deflation, and removal and the key points of the technique at each stage are described in this article. In addition, it expounds on the complications of REBOA and REBOA-inflation time.
