BACKGROUND Femoral artery closure device use following percutaneous cannulation allows earlier mobilization, reduced staff burden, and improved comfort for patients compared with manual compression. The Mynx device (Access Closure, Inc), a novel extravascular closure device, uses a water-soluble non-thrombogenic polyethylene glycol plug. METHODS We report retrospective analysis of success, complication rates, and associated factors in 432 consecutive patients undergoing elective outpatient coronary angiography in a single United Kingdom center. RESULTS Six Fr sheaths were used in 62.1% and 5 Fr sheaths were used in 37.8%, with 100% successful deployment using a Mynx device. A total of 57.5% of patients were male. In 79.4%, this was the first procedure requiring femoral arteriotomy, while 20.6% had a previous procedure. Overall, 3.2% required conversion to manual compression/ FemoStop (St. Jude Medical) due to impending hematoma. In all, 99.5% of patients were discharged on the same day. Confirmed hematoma >5 cm was noted in 0.7% patients, with only 2 patients (0.5%) reporting "any discomfort" during deployment and the same requiring overnight hospitalization. Use of a 6 Fr sheath (compared with 5 Fr) was associated with conversion to manual compression and complications (P<.05), as was valvular heart disease as the indication for angiography (P<.05). Hematoma formation was associated with higher diastolic and mean arterial pressure (107.4 mm Hg vs 99.6 mm Hg; P<.01). There was no increase in complications associated with use of antiplatelet/anticoagulants, previous stroke, myocardial infarction/ischemic heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes, high body mass index, or previous angiographic procedure. CONCLUSIONS Postangiography use of the Mynx closure device is highly successful, safe, and well-tolerated with a low complication rate, allowing safe same-day discharge.
