A Single Arterial Puncture for Blood-Gas Analysis Cause a Rare Complication: Radial Artery Pseudoaneurysm

Because of its improved safety profile, the radial artery has essentially replaced the femoral artery as the preferred access route. With a reported incidence of 0.048 percent, radial artery pseudoaneurysm due to arterial wall disruption is an extremely rare consequence of arterial cannulation. PA has previously been recorded following radial artery puncture for continuous blood pressure monitoring and serial blood-gas analysis; however, to our knowledge, only one case report of PA following a single arterial puncture for blood-gas analysis has been reported. The prevention and early detection of this consequence require identifying prospective high-risk individuals, guaranteeing longer compression in these patients, and close monitoring even after the compression bandage/hemostatic device is removed. This chapter will provide detailed information on the subject.
