1Clinic of Cardiovascular Surgery, Türkiye Yüksek İhtisas Training and Research Hospital, Ankara DOI : 10.9739/uvcd.2013-37814 Radial artery pseudoaneurysm is a very rare entity. Iatrogenic pseudoaneurysm after trans-radial cardiac catheterization in a 42-year-old male patient was presented in this paper. Me- chanical valve replacement and ascending aorta graft interposition were performed following catheterization. He was on warfarin therapy after surgery. The patient underwent surgical repair of pseudoaneurysm successfully. Although it is a rare complication, great attention and alertness is essential for prevention in patients on anticoagulation therapy.
