Abstract

When compared to manual compression, utilization of vascular closure devices (VCDs) in an appropriate patient population has the potential to reduce time to post procedure mobility and thereby improve patient comfort after percutaneous procedures. Additionally, reduced time to ambulation is important as more hospitals adopt same-day discharge strategies. However it has not been clearly established if VCDs reduce overall complication rates when compared to manual compression. When utilizing these devices, one must weigh the potential complications associated with these devices against their potential benefits. This chapter will review VCDs commonly used with respect to their specific indications for use, specific contraindications, and safe deployment practices.
