The radial artery approach to coronary catheterization is considered to be superior to femoral artery access in terms of vascular complications. The authors describe two patients who developed pseudoaneurysm following radial artery access for cardiac catheterization. The patients underwent surgical exploration with good results. Although rare, radial artery pseudo-aneurysms may complicate cardiac catheterization and have serious clinical consequences.
