Hemostatic Seal Stops Blood Leaks Around Guide Wires

February 3, 2010 – The new Gator ClipSeal Plug is designed to maintain a hemostatic seal around 0.035- or 0.038-inch guide wires within large hemostatic valve introducer sheaths to minimize blood loss.

The Gator is intended for use with commonly used 12 to 24 French introducer sheaths in procedures such as endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) or thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA).

The design of the Gator provides an easy and effective solution for minimizing blood loss by side-loading onto the in-place guide wire and securely fitting into the valve of the introducer sheath.
