Percutaneous cannulation of the dorsalis pedis artery has been shown to be easy to perform, reliable, and relatively safe for intra arterial monitoring. The incidence of thrombosis was significantly less than that in radial arteries after cannulation. No major complication was associated with 30 percutaneous cannulations of the dorsalis pedis artery in this study.
