Prytime Medical™ Devices, Inc., is an innovative medical device company that designs, develops and commercializes minimally invasive solutions for hemorrhage control.
Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta or (REBOA) is a minimally invasive technique using a balloon catheter to temporarily occlude large vessels in support of hemorrhage control.
In trauma, hemorrhage is the leading cause of potentially survivable death: Non-compressible truncal hemorrhage is of particular interest, because there are limited clinical options to temporarily occlude large vessels during truncal hemorrhage.
Similarly, clinicians report REBOA use in other emergent hemorrhage control situations, such as:
- Postpartum hemorrhage
- Adjunct during surgical procedures
- Interventional radiology
- Pre-hospital setting
