US-guided pseudoaneurysm repair with a compression device.

Author information

Department of Interventional Radiology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, Md.


A simple commercially available compression device allowed intermittent ultrasound scanning of the compression site during compression repair of a femoral artery pseudoaneurysm in six patients. All six of the pseudoaneurysms (five superficial femoral and one common femoral) were compressed without compression of the underlying vessels. The procedure was successful in four of the six patients, without complications. Use of this device may decrease operator fatigue during compression repair of pseudoaneurysm.
