Hemorrhage remains a leading cause of death in military trauma settings. Reports from the battlefield have found that over 50of 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.
