The formation of pseudoaneurysm in the femoral artery after cardiac catheterization is a well-recognized complication occurring in 1%-4% of cases. It is traditionally managed surgically and has a high morbidity. Prolonged ultrasound-guided compression of the neck of the pseudoaneurysm, and ultrasound-guided injection of thrombin into the aneurysm are newer modalities of treatment especially for small aneurysms. We describe the case of a giant pseudoaneurysm of the right femoral artery, post-arteriography, which was successfully managed with ultrasonographically guided percutaneous thrombin injection.
