With this project, we have created the largest and most detailed database of vascular anatomy ever done and linked this vascular anatomy data in 3D space to anatomic landmarks throughout the torso. This database was created with the substantial use of software algorithms that substantially increased the precision of the measures taken. Using the morphomic and vascular anatomy data obtained from a young adult civilian population, we were able to objectively determine the location and size of the aortic zones needed for effective placement of REBOA in the field. The precise characterization of vascular lengths and dimensions will guide the future development of vascular intervention devices including next generation REBOA catheters.
