ObturaTM Vascular Closure Device is an effective mechanical system for femoral artery puncture site closure.
Incorporated with a potent sealing system, it provides an assailable sealing with the collagen plug and efficiently designed anchor. ObturaTM Vascular Closure Device is a simple 3-Step closure device making it easy to use and yielding rapid hemostasis.

The ObturaTM VCD closes and sandwiches the arteriotomy between the anchor and collagen sponge. Hemostasis is achieved primarily by the mechanical means of the anchor - arteriotomy - collagen sandwich, which is supplemented by the coagulation inducing properties of the collagen.

The ObturaTM VCD can be used with the existing 6 and 8 French  introducer sheath used during the interventional procedures with a working length of up to 12cm.
