Radial artery pseudoaneurysm is an extremely rare complication associated with transradial catheterization. We report 2 cases of pseudoaneurysm of the radial artery that were successfully treated using the Terumo TR band. We believe that the safety, efficiency, speed and minimal invasiveness of this method make it feasible for use as a treatment for peripheral pseudoaneurysm in such patients.
