Pseudoaneurysm following diagnostic or interventional procedures is a well-known complication. We describe a new method of closing a femoral pseudoaneurysm in a case where ultrasound-guided compression had failed. Instead of packing the sac permanently with coils, thrombus formation was successfully induced by temporary placement of a coil transcutaneously in the psendoaneurysm sac, which resulted in closure of the pseudoaneurysm.
