Abstract

We describe a safe and inexpensive technique of avoiding femoral access site complications. Initial fluoroscopic screening of a fully inserted local anesthetic needle helps localize the anticipated arterial puncture site. Repeating fluoroscopy after guide wire insertion through the puncture needle confirms the exact puncture site in the artery.
