EVTM aims to provide a truly Open Access platform for the dissemination of knowledge and peer-reviewed research in the field of endovascular resuscitation and hybrid hemorrhage control or hemodyanmic instabilites. Besides this we work to spread this new paradigm within trauma management through workshops, symposia and social media. We focus on good, transparent, ethical research and collaboration. Its not only trauma, but resuscitation by surgical and hybrid techniques.
General EVTM Information:
As endovascular methods develop, they can be incorporated into initial trauma care upon patient arrival. They include adopting a multidisciplinary trauma and non-trauma approach, early femoral vascular access (AABCDE), Aortic Balloon Occlusion (ABO or REBOA), surgery on a sliding/angiography table, angiography, embolization, stent grafts, and much more. Today, we can use both open surgery and endo methods (hybrid) to control massive bleeding by having an EVTM perspective at time of patient arrival in the trauma bay, or even in the field or battlefield. Some of these methods have been in use for many years, while some have been developed over the last 15-20 years. However, not all are used in primary trauma management. We believe that EVTM is here to stay, and should be applied in all severe trauma cases, even in the prehospital environment or battlefield. EVTM can be used in both developed and less developed countries, whether it be with a C-arm or in a hybrid suite. There are also new developments in EVTM regarding REBOA including partial REBOA (pREBOA) vs Total REBOA (TREBOA), Intermitted REBOA (iREBOA), field REBOA (fREBOA), Transfer REBOA (tREBOA)- Very exciting times!
