ANGIO-SEAL® EVOLUTION™ Vascular Closure Device
ACTIVE CLOSURE SYSTEM
Designed to hold the solution in place, the active closure system consists of an innovative intra-arterial anchor, suture and collagen seal that are fully bioabsorbable within 60 to 90 days.1
LOCATE THE ARTERY
Exchange procedure sheath with Angio-Seal locator system.
- Blood flow through the locator confirms sheath has entered the artery.
- Confirm proper location by withdrawing and reinserting the Angio-Seal locator system until blood flow resumes and then STOP.
- Remove locator and wire, leaving the sheath in place.
SET THE ANCHOR
- Carefully grasp the Angio-Seal device just behind the bypass tube and slowly insert into the sheath until you hear a click.
- Maintain a grip on the sheath hub, grasp device handle, and gently pull back until you hear another click.
SEAL THE PUNCTURE
- Provide support to the puncture site with two fingers.
- Gently pull back on the Angio-Seal device handle along the angle of the puncture tract.
- Continue to pull back until hemostasis is achieved. As a guide, the colored compaction marker will be revealed.
RELEASE THE SUTURE
- Release and hold down the suture release button.
- Gently pull back on the device handle until the suture is exposed.
- With tension on the suture, cut the suture below skin level.

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.
