ANGIO-SEAL™ STS PLUS VASCULAR CLOSURE DEVICE

ACHIEVE HEMOSTASIS QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY

Composed of a collagen sponge and polymer anchor connected by a self-tightening suture, the Angio-Seal STS PLUS vascular closure device seals and sandwiches the arteriotomy for a more complete closure. The device stops the flow of blood mechanically, which is supported by the platelet inducing properties of the collagen.1,2 The suture, collagen and anchor are all fully bioabsorbable within 60 to 90 days.Learn more about clinical evidence.

EASY TO USE AND ADAPTABLE

We have designed the Angio-Seal STS PLUS vascular closure device to:

  • Provide a smoother transition from the arteriotomy locator to the insertion tip 
  • Prevent the sheath tip from entering, exiting and then re-entering the vessel wall 
  • Fit the vessel only one way for proper positioning through its lock-in hub
  • Work with the most commonly used guidewires in the cath lab 
  • Provide confirmation of device positioning with Secure-Cap™ technology

The device is offered in both 6 F and 8 F sizes.

Indications:
The  Angio-Seal Vascular Closure Device product family, including the STS Plus, VIP and Evolution platforms, is indicated for use in closing and reducing time to hemostasis of the femoral arterial puncture site in patients who have undergone diagnostic angiography procedures or interventional procedures using an 8 French or smaller procedural sheath for the 8 F Angio-Seal device and a 6 French or smaller procedural sheath for the 6 F Angio-Seal device. The Angio-Seal STS Plus, VIP and Evolution platform devices are also indicated for use to allow patients who have undergone diagnostic angiography to safely ambulate as soon as possible after sheath removal and device placement, as well as to allow patients who have undergone an interventional procedure to safely ambulate after sheath removal and device placement.

Important Safety Information:
Possible adverse events for vascular closure devices include, but are not limited to: bleeding or hematoma, AV fistula or pseudoaneurysm, infection, allergic reaction, foreign body reaction, inflammation or edema. This device should only be used by a licensed physician (or other health care professional authorized by or under the direction of such physician) possessing adequate instruction in the use of the device, e.g., participation in an Angio-Seal physician instruction program or equivalent.
