The authors show that the prophylaxis of local complications after femoral artery cannulation consists of proper technique of puncture, careful site selection for puncture, usage of closure devices and external compression. The authors also underline that it is necessary to pay special attention to patients receiving anticoagulant or antiaggregant therapy. Despite the rarity, occurrence of inguinal canal hematoma after the X-ray contrast angiography and X-ray endovascular surgery is a serious complication that can prolong recovery. For a complete recovery after femoral artery paracentesis it is necessary to provide a bed regime, to apply a compression band and to monitor a medical state during the first day.
