Channelling femoral vascular access (arterial and venous) is a common technique in our daily practice. These techniques are not without complications, which may go unnoticed initially and as in the case presented manifests with symptoms of hypovolemic shock in previously stable patient. One of these complications is injury to the inferior epigastric artery is rare but must be suspected in a patient with a history of femoral vascular access channel that begins with symptoms of hypovolemia. It is crucial to perform appropriate diagnostic techniques (CT angiography and arteriography) and urgent treatment (therapeutic arteriography) as its diagnosis and treatment may be critical in the patient's prognosis.
