Femoral Arterial and Venous Access
The Perclose ProGlide™ vascular closure system has the broadest indication for femoral arterial access sites 5-21F2 (Max. 26F OD1) and venous access sites 5-24F3 (Max. 29F OD1).
For common femoral access sites
*As compared to Angio-Seal‡, ExoSeal‡, FemoSeal‡, InClosure‡, MANTA‡, Mynx‡, PerQseal‡, Vascade‡, Velox CD‡, X-Seal‡. Data on file at Abbott.
1. Max. OD 26F/0.340 inches/8.62 mm; Max. OD 29F/0.378 inches/9.59 mm. Tests performed by and data on file at Abbott.
2. For arterial sheath sizes greater than 8F, at least two devices and the pre-close technique are required.
3. For venous sheath sizes greater than 8F, at least one device and the pre-close technique are required.
Don't Just Close. Repair.
Perclose ProGlide™ provides percutaneous surgical repair with a suture by delivering a secure, non-masking percutaneous repair. Perclose ProGlide™ promotes primary intention healing1 with less scarring2, and reduces time to hemostasis, ambulation and discharge3,4.
The use of Perclose ProGlide™ for repair of large-bore arterial access is associated with significantly lower blood transfusions, infections, mortality, and length of stay compared to cutdown.5
The use of Perclose ProGlide™ for large-bore venous access is also associated with low major access site-related complications.6
1. Primary intention healing occurs where vessel wall edges are brought together, adjacent to each other. This can be achieved with suture, stitches, staples, and clips.
