The present invention relates to a sensor for percutaneous insertion and intravascular residence without an indwelling cannula. In preferred embodiments, a glucose sensor is inserted into a blood vessel using a removable cannula. After the cannula is removed, the glucose sensor remains within the blood vessel by itself and forms a seal with the patients tissue.
