A new device for percutaneous suture-mediated closure of arterial puncture sites using exteriorized needles: initial experience



A new device for percutaneous suture-mediated closure of arterial puncture sites using exteriorized needles: initial experience



Journal of Invasive Cardiology 13(6): 456-459



To assess the feasibility and initial clinical results of Closer (Perclose, Redwood City, California), a new device for percutaneous suture-mediated closure of arterial puncture sites. Vascular interventions were performed using 6 and 7 French sheaths in 22 consecutive patients. All patients underwent suture-mediated percutaneous closure with the new device. Patients were followed by physical examination the day after the procedure. Immediate hemostasis was achieved in 20/22 patients (91%). In 3 out of 5 antegrade closures, only one suture was captured. In two cases, this was managed by reinsertion of a second device. In another patient, hemostasis was not achieved by the device due to knot entrapment. No major complications were observed. The overall rate of minor complications was 9% (2/22) due to hematomas without the need for blood transfusions. Percutaneous suture with this new device is an acceptably safe and effective method to achieve immediate hemostasis of the arterial access site after interventional procedures with minimized manipulation of the puncture track.
