Abstract

Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a tool of trauma surgeons used to obtain endovascular control of hemorrhage while ensuring the redistribution of blood flow to central organs such as the heart and brain. Its use in multiple trauma and non-trauma scenarios has been growing in the last decade; however, there are aspects within the indications, deployment technique and complications that continue to be controversial. Currently, there is no consensus among trauma surgeons in the Americas regarding the implementation of this tool for resuscitation and hemorrhage control. The Panamerican Trauma Society (PTS) in conjunction with the Colombian Association of Surgery recently convened 2018, XXXI Panamerican trauma, critical care, and emergency surgery Congress (August 14th to 17th) in Cartagena, Colombia. One main objective of the Congress was to create a consensus in trauma management via expert opinions of leading surgeons from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean. It is the first consensus that addresses the indications, deployment technique and complications of REBOA in the Americas.
