Abstract

Vascular intervention via the femoral artery can cause vascular access complications and complications from closure of the arteriotomic incision site such as bleeding, thrombotic complications and vascular trauma. These types of complications occur in about 2% to 10% of the cases. After removal of the catheter, hemostasis is traditionally achieved by manual compression as a standard method. Many vascular closure devices have been developed in an attempt to improve the patient's comfort and to decrease the time to ambulation. Yet the safety and effectiveness of these vascular closure devices as compared to that of manual compression remains unclear. Herein we report on a case of femoral arterial occlusion due to vascular closure devices and the operative management.
