The QuickClose study is a prospective, non-randomized study, to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the QuickClose device using two different dose types of heat exposure.

Patients undergoing a diagnostic angiogram procedure will be treated with the QuickClose device. Two groups of 20 patients each, will be enrolled consecutively, Group A will complete enrollment before enrollment into Group B begins. Patients will be monitored until 30 days after the procedure

Condition Intervention Phase
Hemostasis,Surgical Device: QuickClose device Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: The QuickClose Study: Hemostatic Closure of Femoral Artery Access Site, Using the QuickClose: a Prospective, Non-Randomized Clinical Study

Further study details as provided by CardioDex:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • rate of complication [ Time Frame: 30 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • time to hemostasis [ Time Frame: 30 days ]

Enrollment: 8
Study Start Date: July 2007
Study Completion Date: September 2007
Arms Assigned Interventions
2 Device: QuickClose device

Detailed Description:
The primary safety endpoint is the incidence of major complications related to method for achieving hemostasis at the puncture site. The secondary safety endpoint is the incidence of minor complications related to method for achieving hemostasis at the puncture site. The primary efficacy endpoint are time to hemostasis, time to ambulation and time to discharge . The secondary efficacy endpoints are device and procedure success.
