Disclosed are puncture sealing systems and methods of locating a puncture site within a vessel. The systems can include puncture locating dilators and access sheaths that are configured to locate the puncture site within a vessel so that the position of the puncture site relative to a distal end of the access sheath is known during a puncture sealing procedure.

A closure device system for sealing a percutaneous puncture in a vessel wall can comprise a toggle configured to engage an interior surface of the vessel wall, a plug configured to engage an exterior surface of the vessel wall, and a suture that extends through the plug and through the toggle along at least a first direction so as to couple the toggle to the plug. The system can further comprise a tube that extends through the plug and through the toggle along the first direction such that a distal end of the tube is disposed distally to the toggle. The tube can define a guidewire lumen that extends therethrough along the first direction. And the guidewire lumen can be configured to receive a guidewire that protrudes from the vessel wall such that the plug, toggle, and tube are slidable along the guidewire toward the vessel wall.

A method of sealing a vascular puncture of a vessel can include the step of inserting a guidewire through a sheath and into the vessel. The guidewire can include a hollow tube and a balloon coupled to a distal end of the hollow tube. The method can further include the steps of inflating the balloon so as to temporarily occlude the vessel and guiding a closure device along the hollow tube toward the puncture such that a toggle of the closure device enters the vessel through the puncture; and sealing the puncture with the closure device.

Patent
Essential Medical | Date: 2016-06-24

A vascular closure device configured to seal a puncture site in the vessel wall in a more efficient manner is disclosed. The vascular closure device includes a guide member that extends through a portion of the sealing device and that is removable from the portion the sealing device.


Patent
Essential Medical | Date: 2013-07-19

The present technology relates generally to a method and device for closing percutaneous punctures, and more particularly to a multi-lumen tamper for such a device. A closure device for sealing a percutaneous puncture in a wall of a body passageway is disclosed, the closure device including a plug configured to engage a surface of the puncture; a toggle configured to engage an internal surface of the body passageway; an elongate filament configured to associate the plug with the toggle; a locking member configured to engage the plug; and a tamper comprising at least two lumens, wherein a first lumen of the at least two lumens is configured to deliver a pharmaceutical agent to the plug.


A deployment instrument for deploying a closure device for sealing a percutaneous puncture in a wall of a body passageway, the deployment instrument including a carrier assembly, wherein the carrier assembly is configured to hold the closure device in a pre-deployment state, and a tensioner assembly, wherein the filament is fixedly attached to the tensioner assembly, wherein the deployment instrument is configured to increase the tension in the filament upon linear movement of the deployment instrument away from the wall of the body passageway when the closure device is anchored to the wall via the anchor such that the tension is gradually increased as the deployment instrument is moved between a first linear distance and a second linear distance greater than the first linear distance from the wall of the body passageway.


Patent

A vascular closure device includes a release component, a delivery component, a sealing device and at least one actuator. The release component is elongate along a longitudinal direction, and defines a distal end and a proximal end. The delivery component extends along the release component such that at least the release component is movable relative to the delivery component. The delivery component includes a delivery tube body and defines a delivery tube channel. The sealing device has a toggle that is at least partially disposed within the release tube, a suture that is attached to the toggle and extends through the delivery tube channel, and a plug that is attached to the suture proximal to the toggle. The actuator is coupled to the release component and is in communication with the suture such that actuation of the actuator causes (i) the release component to move the proximal direction relative to the delivery component so as to release the toggle from the release component, and (ii) the suture to be pulled in a proximal direction to thereby place the filament in tension and urge the toggle against a distal end of the delivery component such that the toggle is oriented in a sealing position.
