Perclose Suture Mediated Closure Technique
Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Perclose ProGlide® suture mediated closure is a common technique for the percutaneous delivery of a suture for closing the common femoral artery access site at the conclusion of transcatheter interventions. This technique is considered a basic skill for performing transcatheter procedures, and it is one of the must-learn skills for graduating cardiac surgery residents. In this video, the authors demonstrate the Perclose® suture mediated closure technique for closure of the femoral artery after transcatheter aortic valve replacement, and they also show the device functions in an ex vivo setting.
