EBB® is a complete tamponade solution for the emergency of postpartum hemorrhage. Designed by world-renowned maternal-fetal medicine specialists Michael A. Belfort and Gary A. Dildy, the EBB® balloon is made of a malleable yet extremely strong material, allowing EBB to expand and conform to any uterine shape. Ebb also features a vaginal balloon to control vaginal bleeding and act as an anchor to support the uterine balloon. External ports allow independent control of inflation, deflation, irrigation, and drainage.
