Temporary aortic occlusion to facilitate large-bore arterial closure
Journal of Invasive Cardiology , Volume 22 - Issue 10 p. 503- 504
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.
