Thrombin injection is frequently used to occlude iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms in larger vessels, but has never successfully been used in the radial artery location. Here we report the use of this treatment in a patient with radial artery pseudoaneurysm following coronary intervention. After Doppler sonographic visualization of the pseudoaneurysm cavity and its neck, an ultrasound-guided transcutaneous injection of thrombin was carried out. Immediately after the injection, the pseudoaneurysm was completely clotted and Doppler measurement confirmed the stop of blood flow. The result suggests that ultrasound-guided injection of thrombin into a radial artery pseudoaneurysm following coronary intervention is a feasible alternative to surgical intervention.

Pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication following arthroscopic procedures involving the knee. A 38 year-old man presented one month following right knee arthroscopy with a 2 cm pulsating mass on the med...
We present a 58-year-old woman with a right intercostal artery pseudoaneurysm after percutaneous ultrasound (US)-guided liver biopsy. The patient presented 6 days after liver biopsy with a painful, pu...

The radial artery, which is located on the outer side of the forearm, can be used in interventional procedures, such as cardiac catheterization, to provide access to the arterial blood sup...

Subjects' radial artery diameters and plethsmography waveforms will be recorded by MRI and pulse oxymetry at varying levels of radial artery compression by the Terumo TR Band.
Cardiac catheterization has traditionally been performed via access to the arterial circulation from the femoral artery located in the groin. As an alternative to this approach, the radia...
The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.
The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.
Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)
The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.
The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
