Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Percutaneous closure devices used after percutaneous endovascular procedures have become more popular over the past decade. Occlusive vascular complication of the device is rare but always leads to limb-threatening consequence. We report a case of arterial occlusion caused by distal embolization of the suture material in the percutaneous closure device.
