Perclose Suture Mediated Closure Technique
Perclose ProGlide® suture mediated closure is a common technique for the percutaneous delivery of a suture for closing the common femoral artery access site at the conclusion of transcatheter interventions. This technique is considered a basic skill for performing transcatheter procedures, and it is one of the must-learn skills for graduating cardiac surgery residents. In this video, the authors demonstrate the Perclose® suture mediated closure technique for closure of the femoral artery after transcatheter aortic valve replacement, and they also show the device functions in an ex vivo setting.
