Transluminal Technologies LLC. out of Syracuse, New York won the CE Mark for its velox CD Vascular Closure Device used to close arteriotomies following percutaneous femoral procedures. Closing arteries can be a challenge, eating up surgeons’ time just when it’s optimal to move the patient out of the OR. The velox CD device speeds up this process by delivering an implant that plugs the vessel wall from within.
The implant consists of an intraluminal footplate that absorbs within about 24 hours and a extraluminal plug that takes two weeks to absorb. The components are made of a proprietary magnesium alloy that breaks up and bioabsorbs safely into the body, leaving a clean repaired artery without the surgeon having to manually apply pressure during closure.
Here’s a video from a real procedure utilizing the velox CD:
