Abstract : Hemorrhage remains a leading cause of death in military trauma settings. Reports from the battlefield have found that over 50%of potentially salvageable deaths are related to uncontrolled non compressible torso hemorrhage (NCTH). Severe pelvic injury with associated junctional femoral hemorrhage results in hemorrhagic shock. Endovascular techniques such as intra-aortic balloon occlusion have the potential to significantly decrease blood loss, improve physiologic parameters, and ultimately lead to increased survival in patients in hemorrhagic shock from severe pelvic injury.
