In a hostile groin, it may be difficult to perform antegrade endovascular procedures at the lower extremities using the ipsilateral common femoral artery as vascular access; therefore, the use of the ipsilateral superficial femoral artery (SFA) could be a useful alternative. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility and safety of ultrasound-guided SFA puncture versus traditional SFA cutdown to achieve arterial access.

Abstract

In a hostile groin, it may be difficult to perform antegrade endovascular procedures at the lower extremities using the ipsilateral common femoral artery as vascular access; therefore, the use of the ipsilateral superficial femoral artery (SFA) could be a useful alternative. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility and safety of ultrasound-guided SFA puncture versus traditional SFA cutdown to achieve arterial access.
