Description With advancing care of patients with cardiovascular diseases the number of invasive cardiological operations is increasing. Although effective methods are involved, these procedures are also associated with certain risks for the patient. From the aspect of vascular surgery the most frequent complications include iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms and extensive haematomas. The objective of the present work is to evaluate the development of the number of pseudoaneurysms which occurred after puncture of the femoral artery during coronarography or PTCA, and verification of the hypothesis of the declining trend of the ratio of pseudoaneurysms in the total number of performed invasive cardiological diagnostic and therapeutic operations. The author submits in his paper the retrospectively assessed number of invasive operations performed at the 1st Medical Cardioangiological Clinic of the St. Ann Faculty Hospital Brno in 1996-2001. It summarizes the number of PA dealt with during the same period by physicians of the 2nd Surgical Clinic of the St. Ann Hospital in Brno. It analyzes also the treated complications of cardiological operations in 2001.
