The FemoSeal vascular closure device uses
components to actively seal the arteriotomy:
Two bioabsorbable polymer discs
-An inner disc deployed intra-arterially
-An outer locking disc deployed on the outer wall of the
Hemostasis is achieved by
sealing the arteriotomy between the two discs, which are held together by
bioabsorbable sutures complete with friction lock
effective, easy to use
-Instant hemostasis with an easy to use deployment system
-All components of FemoSeal vascular closure device are fully
bioabsorbable: two polymer discs held together by a suture
Rapid hemostasis and early ambulation
-Designed to achieve effective and instant hemostasis. Sealing femoral
artery punctures following catheterization procedures promotes rapid ambulation
with low vascular complication rates.1
-The median Time To Hemostasis (TTH) is 1 minute.2
1. Thread the Femoseal device
over the guidewire and insert the sheath and dilator into the artery.
2. Detach the safety catch
with dilator and guidewire. When the FemoSeal safety catch with dilator has
been retracted a few centimeters (2-4 cm), blood should appear in the proximal
part of the sheath, verifying that the sheath is in the artery.
3. Deploy the inner
disc by pressing down the button completely in one continuous movement
4. Pull back the FemoSeal
device until the depressed button springs back. The inner disc establishes
hemostasis. Maintain suture tension while deploying the outer locking disc by
completely pressing down the button again.
5. Remove the FemoSeal device.
6. After verification, cut the
suture below skin level using a sterile instrument. Clean puncture site and
apply a sterile dressing so that it can easily be observed during recovery.
