Mentice Vascular Trauma Management is designed to develop an understanding of endovascular treatment methods for trauma surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, emergency medicine professionals and their teams.


The module includes cases covering both REBOA (Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta) and embolization techniques for internal hemorrhage control. It provides essential procedural and technical skills training for REBOA to temporize hemorrhagic shock such as blunt or penetrating abdominal trauma, pelvic fractures causing pelvic hemorrhage, ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms, or a crashing trauma patient.

Additionally, cases provide staged training in embolization techniques for the more experienced teams, including correctly identifying and controlling pelvic hemorrhage as well as strategic decision making
