Percutaneous closure of large-bore arterial sheaths remains a clinical challenge. We report a case of facilitated largebore closure using a low-profile valvuloplasty balloon for aortic occlusion. This technique enhanced percutaneous closure device deployment and improved hemostasis during arteriotomy closure.
