The purpose of this study is to determine whether the Ensure Medical Vascular Closure Device is more effective than standard manual compression at sealing the puncture made in the femoral artery following a cardiac or peripheral diagnostic or interventional procedure while maintaining the same level of safety.
Achieving hemostasis at the arterial puncture site after percutaneous cardiac catheterization is a potential cause of bleeding, hematomas, pseudoaneurysms, and various other vascular complications. Hemostasis at the femoral artery access site after diagnostic or interventional procedures is typically achieved using either manual compression or the deployment of a vascular closure device. Manual compression is time consuming for the health-care provider, and painful for the patient. In addition, prolonged periods of immobilization and bed rest may be required. Vascular closure devices have been developed to avoid manual compression, shorten bed rest, and allow earlier ambulation.
The Ensure Medical Vascular Closure device (VCD) is intended for femoral artery puncture site closure in patients who have undergone coronary or peripheral diagnostic or interventional procedure using a standard 6F introducer sheath. The device is comprised of a bio-absorbable plug and a plug delivery system. The plug delivery system is designed to position the bio-absorbable plug to the extravascular surface of the femoral artery access site, facilitating a hemostasis response. The Ensure Medical VCD has been studied in a prior feasibility trial of 149 patients, which demonstrated that: (1) the device could be used to successfully obtain rapid hemostasis and early ambulation in patients undergoing catheterization procedures; and (2) the low incidence and relatively minor nature of the observed closure related complications suggests that the device is safe for its intended purpose.
The ECLIPSE Trial is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Ensure Medical VCD in comparison to standard manual compression. Patients will be randomly assigned to have their arterial access site closed using either manual compression or the VCD. The principal comparisons of the two closure techniques will include:
- Time required to obtain hemostasis of the vascular access site
- Time required for the patient to ambulate after their catheterization
- Frequency of occurrence of serious closure-related complications

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
