Abstract

Femoral arterial puncture is the main access for diagnostic and therapeutic intervention in vascular disease. Significant complications are unusual and include uncontrolled bleeding which usually requires surgery. We report the use of ultrasound-guided thrombin injection that prevented any immediate need for surgery in 2 cases of uncontrolled bleeding following femoral arteriography. Clinical presentations and treatment are reported, together with a review of the literature.
