abstract Arterial complications are rare but clinically critical during or following total hip arthroplasty (THA) surgery. They usually require secondary interventions, either through open or endovascular approaches. In a retrospective study, we analysed indications for, as well as success and safety of, endovascular embolisation for arterial complications after THA.
