Abstract:

The most difficult injuries to manage in austere condition are those labeled as noncompressible torso hemorrhages. The use of endografts have been described for thoracic and abdominal aortic injuries. A quickly deployable endograft may be a lifesaving maneuver in injuries that may otherwise yield a preventable death. This protocol assessed the feasibility of utilizing newer endograft technology that has not been used to repair traumatic injury to seal a large non-compressible arterial injury.
