The REBOA window – a cadaveric study delineating the optimum site for austere cannulation of the femoral artery for resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta

Naim Slim, Charles Timothy West, Paul Rees, Cecilia Brassett & Michael Gaunt
Introduction: Haemorrhage is the major cause of early mortality following traumatic injury. Patients suffering non-compressible torso haemorrhage (NCTH) are more likely to suffer early death. Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) can be effective in initial resuscitation, however establishing swift arterial access is challenging, particularly in a severe shock. This is made more difficult by anatomical variability of the femoral vessels. Methods: The femoral vessels were characterised in 81 cadaveric lower limbs, measuring...
