Temporary aortic occlusion to facilitate large-bore arterial closure.

PMID:  20944193     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Percutaneous closure of large-bore arterial sheaths remains a clinical challenge. We report a case of facilitated large-bore closure using a low-profile valvuloplasty balloon for aortic occlusion. This technique enhanced percutaneous closure device deployment and improved hemostasis during arteriotomy closure.
