[Complications with femoral access in cardiac cathetization. Impact of previous systematic femoral angiography and hemostasis with VasoSeal-ES collagen plug].


INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Most cardiac catheterizations are performed via femoral artery access, and hemostatic devices are commonly used. We evaluate the relationship between the strategy used for femoral arteriography and the use of VasoSeal-ES, and local vascular complications. PATIENTS AND METHOD Prospective study of 540 consecutive catheterizations… (More)
