Abstract

Brisk puncture site bleeding during deployment and application of traction to the Angio-Seal footplate indicates that the foot plate is not anchored correctly against the arterial wall. In this situation, the collagen pack should not be deployed. A more vigorous pull should be applied to disengage the mal-positioned footplate, and to bring it to the arteriotomy site. Once the bleeding stops, the collagen plug can be deployed safely. Deploying the collagen plug before the bleeding stops can deliver the plug into the vessel lumen, resulting in arterial thrombosis. We review four patients in our practice that experienced this event.
