This case illustrates a complication following deployment of the Angioseal® vascular closure device after routine angiography. The Angio-Seal device is a percutaneous, bioabsorbable, collagen-based hemostatic plug deployed to seal the arterial puncture. We describe a 69-year-old gentleman who presented with unilateral leg cramps 1 week post-procedure. When seen in the cardiology clinic, a magnetic resonance imaging angiogram was requested, which showed a filling defect in the right popliteal artery. The collagen seal had embolized and was subsequently removed by the vascular surgeons.
