G Bydawell

Abstract


Pseudoaneurysm of the femoral artery is a well-documented complication following arterial access. There are several treatment options, but
percutaneous injection of thrombin, using ultrasound guidance, has become increasingly popular worldwide and is the therapy of choice in most
vascular centres. This short review highlights the procedure and provides step-by-step guidance for radiologists who are interested in performing
thrombin injection.
