Abstract

Background: Femoral pseudoaneurysm (FPA) is one of the common complications of percutaneous catheterization procedures performed via the femoral artery. The aim of this research was to evaluate factors associated with FPA of sufficient clinical significance that they required surgical treatment after diagnostic or interventional cardiac catheterization.
