Study of the SafeSeal(TM) Hemostasis Patch Following Percutaneous Coronary Artery and Peripheral Vascular Interventions

This study has been completed.

First received: June 1, 2007
Last updated: July 30, 2009
Last verified: July 2009
We seek to determine if the use of the SafeSeal(TM) topical hemostasis patch is associated with reductions in time to hemostasis and time to ambulation compared to standard manual compression after arterial sheath removal following percutaneous coronary and peripheral intervention. We further seek to assess the safety of the SafeSeal patch compared to manual compression.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Device: SafeSeal(TM) Hemostasis Patch
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective Randomized Controlled Efficacy and Safety Trial of the SafeSeal Hemostasis Patch Compared to Manual Compression for Achieving Vascular Hemostasis Following Percutaneous Coronary and Peripheral Intervention.

Further study details as provided by University of Rochester:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to achieve hemostasis of femoral artery after arterial sheath removal [ Time Frame: immediate ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • vascular access-related bleeding complications [ Time Frame: prior to hospital discharge ]

Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: May 2007
Study Completion Date: December 2007
Primary Completion Date: October 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
A variety of topical hemostasis pads containing procoagulant materials are currently available to accelerate hemostasis after removal of the arterial introducer sheath following coronary and peripheral arterial angioplasty procedures. The effectiveness and safety of these pads, however, remains poorly understood. A total of 150 patients undergoing coronary or peripheral vascular angioplasty through a 6 French arterial sheath will be randomized to sheath removal using manual compression alone or manual compression combined with use of the SafeSeal(TM) hemostasis patch. Sheaths will be removed at an activated clotting time (ACT) of <250 seconds, and patients will be kept at bedrest for 2 hours after hemostasis is achieved. The primary endpoint will be time to hemostasis. Secondary endpoints witll include time to ambulation and frequency of bleeding complications.
