Abstract

Numerous complications have been reported regarding the use of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA). Complications can be broadly classified into the following six categories: arterial access-related, REBOA catheter insertion-related, balloon positioning-related, balloon inflation-related, balloon deflation-related, sheath placement, and removal-related. REBOA operators must be knowledgeable about these possible complications and their management, along with its utility. A strong commitment to using REBOA safely and complication-free is essential to the skillful use of REBOA.
