Abstract

Percutaneous femoral artery closure devices are being used routinely after cardiac catheterizations. The use of these devices has been advocated to decrease length of stay, promote early ambulation, and prevent bleeding. We reviewed the use of these devices in our institution and report three cases of infectious complications (two pseudoaneurysms and one infected hematoma). Reports of infected pseudoaneurysms after cardiac catheterization before the implementation of these devices are rare. The use of these devices may be associated with an increased incidence of infected femoral pseudoaneurysms.
