ExoSeal vascular plug gets good reviews in ECLIPSE study
Date:4/1/2008

CHICAGO, Ill. (April 1, 2008) A new bioabsorbable plug that seals the arterial puncture site used for threading catheters into the body during diagnostic angiography and interventional procedures significantly shortens bleeding time and enables patients to get up and walk around far sooner than when manual compression is applied to the groin. In addition, there were no access site complications at 30 days in the ECLIPSE Trial, a multicenter randomized study that is testing the safety and effectiveness of the investigational ExoSeal vascular closure device.

The study will be reported today in a Late-Breaking Clinical Trials session at the SCAI Annual Scientific Sessions in Partnership with ACC i2 Summit (SCAI-ACCi2) in Chicago. SCAI-ACCi2 is a scientific meeting for practicing cardiovascular interventionalists sponsored by the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) in partnership with the American College of Cardiology (ACC).

We demonstrated that the ExoSeal device is a great alternative to manual compression following diagnostic and interventional procedures, said Shing-Chiu Wong, MD, a professor of medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and director of the cardiac catheterization laboratories at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York City. It enables early ambulation and, potentially, early discharge from the hospital following the procedure.

The ExoSeal Vascular Closure Device consists of a felt-like plug made of polyglycolic acid. It is anchored in place on top of the puncture in the femoral artery, after the catheter is removed. Because none of the plug is inserted into the artery itself, it does not interfere with blood flow. Over about three months, it completely dissolves. By comparison, manual compression involves exerting pressure on the femoral artery by hand or through use of a weight or clamp. This process can be uncomfortable for patients. It can ta
