Device Closure

Vascular closure devices are cardiac devices used to achieve closure of the small hole in the artery after a cardiovascular procedure of endovascular surgery requiring a catheterization. Cardiovascular procedures requiring catheterization include diagnostic procedures that help diagnose diseased blood vessels and interventional procedures such as angioplasty, the placement of a stent through the femoral artery to gain access to the coronary artery. At the completion of the procedure, the hole needs to be closed.
