ip grasps the tissue on top of the artery around the access site in a purse-string fashion and closes the opening in the femoral artery rapidly and securely with minimal affect to the lumen diameter or the blood flow inside the vessel.

"We are pleased to introduce StarClose SE to advance the secure closure of the vascular access site following catheterization procedures," said Charles Simonton, M.D., FACC, FSCAI, divisional vice president, Medical Affairs and chief medical officer, Abbott Vascular. "StarClose SE was carefully designed to preserve the safety, reliability and extravascular closure of our first-generation technology, while providing enhanced ease of use for physicians."

For important safety information about StarClose SE, as well as additional information about this product, please refer to Abbott's Web site.

About Catheterization

Catheterization is a procedure commonly used to evaluate or treat certain types of disease in vessels of the heart and other parts of the body. The procedure involves the insertion of a flexible tube, called a catheter, into the femoral artery in the leg. The physician will use the catheter to observe the condition of the coronary or peripheral blood vessels or to treat blockages in the vessels. Following the procedure, the physician will remove the catheter and close the femoral artery access site.

Over the years, a variety of methods, such as direct pressure (manual compression), sandbags and mechanical clamps, have been used to close the puncture site and achieve hemostasis (cessation of bleeding). Many of these methods have proved less than satisfactory, causing patients significant discomfort and requiring up to several hours of bedrest.
