SILVA, Emanuella Galvão de Sales e et al. Endovascular treatment of subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm in a hemophiliac child. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2006, vol.5, n.2, pp.151-156. ISSN 1677-5449.

The placement of central venous catheters in hemophiliac patients is very frequent, due to the specific treatment characteristics of the disease. The complications of these procedures, such as pseudoaneurysm, are generally worse in such patients. Surgical treatment of subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm is known to be one of the greatest surgical challenges in vascular surgery. In hemophiliac patients, the alterations in the normal cascade of coagulation are added to the difficult surgical exposure. As an alternative to the usual surgical treatment, the use of endovascular techniques is a safe method and has good outcomes.
