The Angio-Seal active closure anchor gives you the inside advantage. The anchor creates a mechanical seal from the inside out.

  • The anchor supports proper location for a reliable seal and collagen positioning:1-3
    - 99.7% deployment success1
    - 97.8% hemostasis by device1
  • The anchor and seal are bioabsorbed:
    - Fibrin coats the anchor within hours and becomes totally encapsulated in 7–14 days4
    - Anchor begins to hydrate and soften 24–36 hours after deployment5
    - Anchor is absorbed 95% at 42 days6
    - All components are absorbed within 60–90 days7
  • Arterial flow is not compromised, no evidence of chronic scar tissue or inflammation6, 8

The bioabsorbable Angio-Seal anchor, suture and collagen provide dual security.1-3

  • Fits closely against the arterial wall, leaving blood flow undisturbed with no residual stenosis6
  • Designed to conform to the arteriotomy for confident closure
  • Tethers the anchor and collagen together, providing a secure seal

Locate the artery

  • ​Insert the Angio-Seal locator and sheath system over the wire until blood flows through the drip hole in the locator
  • Withdraw and re-insert to confirm correct location into the vessel
  • Remove the locator and wire, leaving the Angio-Seal sheath in place

Set the anchor

  • ​​Insert the Angio-Seal device into the sheath, click into place and click back to deploy and set the anchor

Set the seal

​Angio-Seal Evolution

  • Pullback the device/sheath assembly until reaching the green marker, which automatically compacts the seal
  • Press the button to release the suture
  • Confirm hemostasis and cut the suture

Angio-Seal VIP and STS Plus

  • Pullback the device/sheath assembly until the suture stops
  • Grasp the tamper tube to manually compact until reaching the black compaction marker
  • Confirm hemostasis and cut the suture
