We evaluated a new hemostasis device to maintain focused pressure over the femoral artery puncture site for 2-6 hours in 330 cases after diagnostic catheterization or coronary angioplasty. No patient developed later hematoma or vascular complications. The initial favorable experience suggests that this hemostasis device has advantageous features of stability and site visualization and is a suitable adjunct to current methods of maintaining puncture site pressure after brief manual compression following arterial catheterization.
