Abstract

In this case report we describe an unusual case of AngioSeal (St. Jude Medical, MN) device malfunction where the arteriotomy locator tip broke off during the AngioSeal deployment. This case report highlights a previously unreported complication of an AngioSeal and we propose some modifications of AngioSeal device and other measures to prevent this from reoccurring. We also describe the endovascular technique that could be used to retrieve a retained tip of the arteriotomy locator using a snare.
