Abbott Launches Next-Generation Vascular Closure System

May 20, 2008 – Abbott launched the StarClose SE Vascular Closure System, a next-generation vessel closure device engineered to enable fast and secure closure of the femoral artery access site following a catheterization procedure.

Available in the U.S. and Europe, StarClose SE (safe and extravascular) builds upon the design of its predecessor, StarClose, with more reportedly ergonomically-friendly design features. StarClose SE utilizes the same nitinol (nickel and titanium) clip technology as StarClose to close the femoral artery access site after a catheterization procedure. When deployed, the small nitinol clip grasps the tissue on top of the artery around the access site in a purse-string fashion and closes the opening in the femoral artery rapidly and securely with minimal affect to the lumen diameter or the blood flow inside the vessel.

StarClose SE advancements include an intuitive, numbered system, providing visual guidance and audible clicks for each step leading to clip deployment; immediate vessel closure with deployment of a shape-memory clip onto the surface of an artery; and added device stability for the operator during clip deployment.

“With a more ergonomic stabilizer and simpler, numbered-step deployment, StarClose SE offers users the ability to close an artery in a fast, safe and effective manner following a catheterization procedure,” said David Lee, M.D., assistant professor of Medicine and director of Cardiac Catheterization and Coronary Intervention Laboratories at the Stanford School of Medicine. "With its definitive mechanical closure, StarClose SE enables an operator to confirm a reliable closure immediately, which offers important benefits for physicians and patients in reducing patient time to mobility following these procedures."
