Catheter-induced vasospasm of small caliber arteries, such as the coronary arteries, is frequently observed during cardiac catheterization, but obstruction of the large caliber arteries has not previously been reported. Here we present two cases in which femoral and external iliac arteries were totally obstructed due to spasm during diagnostic coronary angiography.
