Some authors (Ahmed et al., 2006) suggest that, overall, PLPH management should be aimed at replacing the lost CSF, sealing the puncture site, and controlling the cerebral vasodilatation.

Of course, frequent dialysis requires accessing the blood more often, which typically is done using a long-lasting puncture site through which blood can be removed and returned.
Although number of attempts has limited correlation with the incidence of distal ischaemia (4), haematoma at the puncture site has been associated with radial artery occlusion (3); hence we propose that a dynamic ultrasound-guided method should be used early when arterial cannulation is difficult.
However, the invasive transfemoral puncture approach can simultaneously incurs the risk of vascular complications, such as bleeding, hematoma at the puncture site, distal embolization and arterial thrombosis (6, 7).
