Femoral artery pseudoaneurysms following invasive angiographic procedures are an increasingly common phenomenon, especially since the advent of thrombolytic therapy and the use of larger arterial catheters. This article describes the critical care nurse's role in identifying and assessing patients at risk for pseudoaneurysms, managing a patient who develops this complication, and assisting with treatment. Preventing pseudoaneurysms--and recognizing them promptly if they occur--can reduce patient hospitalization and mortality.
