[Sepsis after catheterization of the femoral artery].


The catheterization of the femoral artery in a case of necrotic stage of obliterating endarteritis resulted in the development of sepsis. Catheterization of main arteries and intraaterial medication in patients, suffering from obliterating diseases of the arteries of the lower extremities, holds the risk of bringing the infection into the arterial bed, and, hence, such medication should be performed only under especially strict aseptic conditions.
