In this systemic review, we summarise the types, configurations, durations, indications and complications of the temporary intravascular shunts used as an adjunct of damage control surgery (DCS) in severe vascular injuries. We conclude that temporary intravascular shunts can be used without systemic anticoagulation for a prolonged time to maintain distal perfusion in combined orthopaedic and vascular injuries, in the setting of DCS and transferring.
