Resuscitative endovascular balloon for occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a minimally invasive method of aortic occlusion. The catheter is introduced through a sheath in the right or left common femoral artery. A balloon in then inserted through the sheath to the desired location along the thoracic or abdominal aorta (Fig. 13.1).
