From Vascular Solutions

The Hunter biopsy sealing device is intended for use in percutaneous liver biopsy procedures to facilitate hemostasis of the biopsy tract and, if desired, mark the biopsy site with a radiopaque marker to help relocate the site for subsequent intervention or diagnosis.


This device provides: 

  • Gelatin foam pledgets to assist in achieving hemostasis.
  • Tantalum coated tip adds radiopacity for locating biopsy sites.
  • Ready-to-deliver and easy-to-use.
  • Available in multiple sizes for 14G-20G coaxial biopsy needles


Each package contains four gelatin foam pledgets:

  • Each pledget radially compressed for smooth delivery
  • Gelatin foam results in hemostasis as well as superior echogenicity
  • Tantalum coated tip on one pledget adds radiopacity
  • Gelatin resorbs within 12 weeks
