Hemodialysis access is not a common cause of femoral artery pseudoaneurysm (FAP) formation. FAP formation during dialysis access is due to inadvertent cannulation of the femoral artery instead of the femoral vein. The ruptured FAPs can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. We hereby share our experience of three cases of ruptured FAPs or with impending rupture after femoral hemodialysis access in patients of chronic kidney disease. Urgent intervention is usually required to prevent life-threatening complications in such patients.
