Transradial cardiac catheterization is frequently performed and is the preferred approach for coronary intervention over the last few years, mainly due to the dramatic decrease in access site complications, shorter hospital stay, and patient comfort. Radial artery pseudoaneurysm (RAP) following cardiac catheterization is an unusual, but serious complication which is rarely reported with very limited data on the clinical manifestations and management strategies. Although myriad noninvasive treatment options have surfaced in the recent years, surgical management remains the standard treatment for RAP. We herein describe a rare case of RAP following transradial access for coronary angiogram managed successfully by surgical resection of the pseudoaneurysm and radial artery ligation with complete alleviation of symptoms immediately postoperative and at follow-up.
