Angio-seal versus manual compression concerning puncture site related complications in peripheral arterial disease

Background: Endovascular surgery, allows us to treat and diagnose peripheral vascular disease of low extremity just with a minimal incision in the common femoral artery. Manual compression has been the gold standard for haemostasis of the puncture site, but in the early 1990s, Vascular Closure devices were introduced with the aim of reducing time to haemostasis, time of ambulation, time of discharge and intervention- related complications. However, its advantage over MC has not been extensively studied following interventional procedures. Objectives: The aim of this study is to compare the vascular puncture-site related complications, using a VCD (Angio-Seal) instead of manual compression. This results will be evaluated in the 30 days’ post-operative. Secondary objectives also include a diminution on the hospital discharge time, time to haemostasis and need for reintervention. Methods: Randomized, controlled clinical trial. The study will be carried out for 3 years (2019-2022). Participants: Patients diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease of the femoro- popliteal sector and indication for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty ​
