Advances in endovascular technologies have demonstrated their promise as potential damage control adjuncts. Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) and other novel devices may provide solutions to some of the significant challenges of hemorrhage from non-compressible sites. This chapter outlines available endovascular tools for utilization and discusses their potential and present limitations.
