Use of a pneumatic compression system (FemoStop) as a treatment option for femoral artery pseudoaneurysms after percutaneous cardiac procedures.


Pseudoaneurysm (PA) formation is a well-documented complication of femoral arterial puncture in patients undergoing percutaneous cardiac procedures. Besides surgical repair, there has been success in obliterating the PAs by Duplex ultrasound guided compression (mostly those < 4.0 cm). We analyzed the use of prolonged femoral compression using a pneumatic… (More)
