Improving the safety of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta - Compliant versus semi-compliant balloon systems

Marta J MadurskaJonathan J Morrison


Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta is an alternative to resuscitative thoracotomy in non-compressible torso haemorrhage. Low-profile, compliant balloon catheter systems have been developed, which can be deployed without the need for fluoroscopy. However, concern exists for over inflation and aortic injury, especially as compliant balloon material can stretch reducing syringe feedback and limiting the effectiveness of a safety valve. An alternative material would be a semi-compliant balloon material, but its performance is unknown. The aim of this study was to compare the inflation characteristics of compliant versus semi-compliant balloon systems and to determine whether a pressure relief safety valve can be practically applied to a semi-compliant balloon catheter as a safety device. This was an ex vivo study using porcine segments of thoracic aorta. The study consisted of two phases. The first phase involved intermittent inflation of six compliant balloon and six semi-compliant balloon balloons until balloon or aortic rupture. In the second phase, six semi-compliant balloons with the pressure-relief valve set at 0.45 atmospheres were inflated in the aortas until the valve release, followed by injection w...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
