Abstract

Traumatic inferior vena cava (IVC) injuries are highly lethal and require prompt surgical intervention. Traditional methods of vascular control include manual compression, gentle clamping or balloon occlusion catheters. These open methods require direct dissection into the hematoma for visualization, which can lead to massive hemorrhage. We present a case of percutaneously delivered balloon catheter occlusion for vascular control prior to repair of an infrarenal IVC injury as a potential alternative. This approach achieves complete occlusion of the injury site and allow easier repair of the IVC, thereby reducing operative time and blood loss.
