Intravascular misplacement of an extravascular closure system: StarClose.

Author information

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Heart Center Brandenburg, Bernau-Berlin, Germany.


Closure devices for closing femoral arteries following catheterization procedures are routinely used. They reduce time of immobilization and decrease complications such as bleeding and aneurysm formation. We report of a new vascular closure device (StarClose, marketed by Abbott) that was misplaced in the femoral artery with subsequent vascular stenosis and need for surgical removal and plastic reconstruction.
