Increasing use of percutaneous interventional cardiac and peripheral arterial procedures has resulted in high incidence of femoral pseudoaneurysms. This case report presents a 68 year-old male with a femoral pseudoaneurysm after percutaneous iliac transluminal angioplasty, who was treated with ultrasound guided compression successfully. Although surgical procedures are widely performed in Turkey, it should be kept in mind that compression therapy is effective and may present as an initial step in the management of femoral pseudoaneurysms.

Keywords: Pseudoaneurysm, color flow duplex, compression
