  Purpose

Background:

Vascular closure devices (VCD) were developed to reduce access site bleedings, to improve patients´ comfort, and to accelerate ambulation after percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). Despite higher complications rates in earlier studies, current data suggest similar complication rates or better outcomes after the use of VCD as compared to manual compression. ExoSeal (Cordis, Warren, NJ, USA) is a new, extravascular polyglykolacid (PGA) plug which occludes the puncture channel. Whether the use of this extravascular closure device is as effective as the more widely used plug/anchor mediated devices, has not been evaluated so far.

We performed a randomized, multicentre, single-blinded trial to compare the efficacy of the extravascular closure device ExoSeal in comparison to the collagen-based plug/anchor mediated AngioSeal system.

Methods:

304 patients receiving diagnostic angiography and/or PCI will be included in three centers. Exclusion criteria are contraindications for any VCD including 1. severe calcification of the access vessel, 2. severe peripheral artery disease, 3. puncture in the origin of the profound femoral artery, 3. non-femoral sheath insertion, 4. marked turtuosity of the femoral or iliac artery, 5. marked obesity or kachexia (BMI >40 or <20) and 6. patients on continuous medication with oral anticoagulants.

After the procedure, angiography of the accessed femoral artery is performed to rule out major risk factors for retroperitoneal hemorrhage, relevant peripheral stenoses of the common or the superficial femoral artery, or a location of the puncture site in the bifurcation of the profundal femoral artery.

We hypothesise, that the use of an extravascular closure device is not inferior to an anchor/plug mediated device regarding the occurrence of the following complications: bleeding, need for vascular surgery and device failure (primary endpoints). Secondary endpoints are the occurance of false aneurysms, severe pain (Borg ≥ 5), and hematoma ≥ 5 cm within 24 hours after insertion of the device. Power was 80%, alpha 0.05. Bleeding will be defined according to the TIMI criteria. The study is actively enrolling patients, last inclusion will take place in September 2012.

Results and Conclusions:

Outcome data including the primary endpoint (bleeding, need for vascular surgery and device failure) will be presented for the first time.
