REBOA (Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta) is a minimally invasive technique used by the trauma, critical care and emergency medicine community to temporarily occlude large vessels using a balloon.

‘Features of ER-REBOA include its small 7 french scale size, which precludes the need for extra surgical repair at the access site. The catheter doesn''t require multiple wire exchanges. It also has a soft, atraumatic tip and offers simultaneous arterial pressure monitoring.’
