- endovascular procedure;
Severe vascular access complications are infrequent, yet potentially life-threatening, conditions related to percutaneous procedures approached via the femoral artery. Surgical vascular repair of such complications are associated with high rates of morbimortality due to advanced cardiovascular disease. Endovascular repair of the injured vessel appears to be the treatment of choice for patients who cannot tolerate vascular reconstruction and bleeding due to severe cardiovascular disease. We report a case that illustrates the feasibility of a novel technique: transcatheter “thrombin-blood patch” injection to access perforated arteries. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
