Abstract

A femoral artery occlusion is a very rare complication after using a suture-mediated arterial puncture closing device (APCD). The mechanism of the femoral artery occlusion is unclear and its standard management has not been established. This case describes a mechanism of femoral artery occlusion by a suture-mediated APCD and suggests a method of prevention and treatment.
