Brief Summary:

The QuickClose Design 9 is a prospective, non randomized study, to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the QuickClose design 9 closure device.

patient undergoing a diagnostic or therapeutic angiogram procedure will be treated with the QuickClose Design 9. Patients will be monitored until 30 days after the procedure.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Coagulation Therapeutic Uses Pharmacologic Actions Device: closure device Phase 1 Phase 2

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

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 50 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: The QuickClose Design 9 System Study
Study Start Date : May 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date : May 2011

Intervention Details:
  • Device: closure device
    the invasive specialist must carefully manage the difficult balance of patient anticoagulation and coagulation for stopping the bleeding at the femoral artery puncture site. the QuickClose design 9 system is designed to benefit the patients and the medical staff by improving the process. the risks to patients associated with this study are considered reasonable in comparison to the anticipated benefits to the subjects, and the scientific knowledge that can be gained from the study.
    Other Name: wound healing

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. rate of complications [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Establishing a rate of major complications

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. time to hemostasis [ Time Frame: procedure day ]
    establishing a rate of time to hemostasis
