Objective To evaluate the efficiency of Angio-seal vascular closure device in femoral artery closure after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Methods A total of 152 patients were divided into vascular closure device group (n=76) and manual compression group (n=76). The success rate of haemostasis, haemostasis time, bedrest time and complication incidence were observed.

Results There were no differences in the success rate of haemostasis in two groups (p>0.05). Compared with manual compression group, the time of haemostasis, the time of bed rest were markedly decreased in vascular closure device group (p<0.05). There was a significant difference (p<0.05) in vascular complication incidence between the two groups.

Conclusion Angio-seal vascular closure device provided a safe and effective means of obtaining rapid arterial haemostasis after coronary intervention. It reduces the bed rest time and complications.
