Trauma is the leading cause of mortality among Americans 1-44 years old and is responsible for 193,000 deaths annually. One third of these patients die from exsanguination. Current practice guidelines emphasizing nonoperative management (NOM) of most hemodynamically stable blunt trauma patients and advances in endovascular equipment and techniques have led to an established role for adjunctive endovascular therapy in the arrest of traumatic hemorrhage.
