Abstract

Thrombin injection is known as an efficient and safe method of femoral artery pseudoaneurysms treatment, however, it can be complicated by peripheral thrombosis to accidental casual thrombin injection into femoral artery. We present our own procedure modification. Before thrombin injection we inject into pseudoaneurysm a small volume of ultrasonographic contrast. Doppler signal enhancement confirmes proper niddle position.
