The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Boomerang percutaneous closure device following diagnostic cerebral angiography or neurointerventional procedures.


Very few publications have evaluated this relatively novel percutaneous closure device.

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: January 2008
Study Completion Date: September 2008
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Boomerang percutaneous closure unit
patients having a Boomerang percutaneous closure device after a Neurointerventional study
Device: Boomerang closure device
Use of percutaneous of Boomerang closure device. Follow up outcomes evaluated after the use of Boomerang closure device.

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to document our experiences using the Boomerang closure device. Several different closure devices are used in the department of Radiology. A closure device is something that is placed in the artery in the leg just prior to removing the catheters from your leg at the end of the imaging or treatment procedure that is to be performed in the Department of Radiology. The devices used are all FDA approved. This study will compare the Boomerang device (a newer FDA approved device) to the other older devices currently being used. You may not have the Boomerang device used in your procedure; however, the Boomerang device is used in almost all of our patients undergoing a neuro imaging or treatment procedure. The neuroradiologist will determine which device if any is best for you based on the size of your artery, your medical condition etc. We will only collect data about you and your procedure if the Boomerang device is used.
