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.

Ultrasound-guided thrombin injection has become standard treatment for extremity pseudoaneurysms. Our specific aims were to determine the procedural success rate, the procedural complication rate, and...
To review the causes, clinical course, and management of patients with catheter-associated radial artery pseudoaneurysm (PSA).
The palpation technique is generally used for radial artery catheterisation, but is associated with a high rate of failure and complications. Dynamic needle tip positioning (DNTP) is a new ultrasound-...
Recently, several studies have investigated the effectiveness of the ultrasound-guided lumbosacral transforaminal epidural injection. However, the ultrasound-guided S1 transforaminal epidural injectio...
The investigators are trying to compare the ultrasound-guided technique vs. palpation method for radial arterial cannulation in infants.
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of ultrasound- guided with the traditional palpation radial artery cannulation in critically ill children.
Data from literature: transradial access failure sometimes occurs due to inability to cannulate the radial artery due to radial artery spasm1 causing severe difficulties in manipulation of...
Radial artery access is increasingly becoming popular among interventional cardiologists for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI)/ diagnostic angiography secondary t...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive endoscopic harvest of the radial artery to the conventional open method of radial artery harvest ...
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.

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.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
