Pseudoaneurysm is a pulsatile hematoma which communicates with an artery through a disruption in the arterial wall. Femoral artery Pseudoaneurysm (FAP) is an uncommon complication following arterial catheterization procedures. The diagnosis is usually made on the basis of clinical examination and confirmed by Doppler ultrasound. Treatment options include: Ultrasound guided compression, thrombin injection, coil embolization, stent graft and surgical repair. We report a case of successful closure of profunda femoris artery pseudoaneurysm (PFAP) using a new technique with angio-seal vascular closure device.
