The Angio-Seal vascular closure device uses three bioabsorbable components to actively seal the arteriotomy:
AnchorIntravascular: placed against the inside of the vessel wall.
CollagenExtravascular: placed on top of the arteriotomy in the tissue tract.
SutureCinches the anchor and collagen together to form a secure seal.
The Angio-Seal active closure anchor gives you the inside advantage. The anchor creates a mechanical seal from the inside out.
The bioabsorbable Angio-Seal anchor, suture and collagen provide dual security.1-3
