BACKGROUND The use of access-site closure devices in interventional cardiology has expanded rapidly in the past several years. Initial reports indicated remarkable safety with these devices but there are a small number of major complications. This single-center, retrospective study was carried out to investigate the efficacy of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of inadvertent occlusion or severe stenosis of the femoral artery after deployment of the Angio-Seal closure device.
