To compare Angio-Seal (AS) and StarClose (SC) and manual compression (MC) on efficacy of hemostasis, complication rate, safety of early mobilization, and patient comfort.

Nineteen Sous Scroufulae pigs underwent bilateral percutaneous arteriotomies using ultrasound-guided 6 Fr sheath insertion in both common femoral arteries. The femoral access site was then closed using either an Angio-Seal STS Plus, an absorbable collagen sponge, or StarClose, a self-closing nitinol clip

The use of arterial closure devices (ACDs) in interventional radiology (IR) procedures has not yet been validated by large-scale randomised controlled trials or meta-analysis. Improved haemostasis and early mobilisation are publicised advantages; however, anecdotal evidence of haemorrhagic and ischaemic complications with ACDs is also apparent. Meta-analysis from interventional cardiology cannot be directly extrapolated for IR patients
