Angio–Seal is a closure device. It stops the bleeding after angiography procedures, such as cardiac catheterization. During this procedure, a catheter punctures an artery in your groin.
Just so, what is Angio seal made of?
The Angio– Seal™ Evolution™ Device is composed of an absorbable collagen sponge and a specially designed absorbable polymer anchor that are connected by an absorbable self-tightening suture (STS). The device seals and sandwiches the arteriotomy between its two primary members, the anchor and the collagen sponge.
Similarly, does Angioseal dissolve? Angio-seal closure device used in this case creates a mechanical seal by sandwiching the arteriotomy site between a bio absorbable anchor and a collagen sponge. The collagen sponge and the anchor dissolve gradually over a period of 60-90 days .
