BACKGROUND: Percutaneous arterial closure devices have increasingly entered clinical practice to assist in achieving femoral arterial access site hemostasis. Prior studies have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of several arterial closure devices in adults. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of using an arterial closure device in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of all children (defined as younger than 18 years) undergoing device-assisted closure of their percutaneous femoral arterial access site was conducted. Patient demographics, the clinical indications for use of the arterial closure device and pre-procedural laboratory parameters were noted. The accessed common femoral artery diameter and largest procedural sheath size were recorded. The technical success rate for device deployment and rates of immediate and delayed complications including hemorrhage, access site or retroperitoneal hematoma, access site infection, arterial thromboembolism, pseudoaneurysm or arteriovenous fistulae were documented. RESULTS: Between June 2009 and June 2011, an arterial closure device was deployed with intent to achieve hemostasis in percutaneous femoral arterial access punctures in 38 consecutive children. The mean common femoral artery diameter was 0.70 ± 0.13 cm. Device deployment was technically successful in 37/38 (97.4%) procedures. There was a single complication (2.6%), a small access site hematoma. No other immediate or delayed complications occurred. CONCLUSION: The use of a percutaneous arterial closure device can be an efficacious method for achieving immediate femoral arterial access site hemostasis with few complications in children who have undergone percutaneous femoral arterial access procedures.
