Acute limb ischemia due to vascular closure devices is an infrequent complication. However, its incidence is increasing because the use of these devices has become commonplace after cardiac catheterization and coronary angioplasty. It is therefore important for interventional cardiologists to be acquainted with the knowledge and cognitive skills of managing this complication in the catheterization laboratory. The present report describes a strategy to manage this complication in a cardiac catheterization laboratory that is not equipped with standard fluoroscopic equipment for peripheral interventions.
