All-In-One Arterial Access and Closure System (ACS)

Tech ID: 30536 / UC Case 2019-654-0

Brief Description

Arterial access-site complications are a leading cause of morbidity following a catheterization procedure. There lacks a reliable, fail safe method for arterial closure. At the same time, the arterial access and closure procedures are independent of each other. A UCI surgeon presents an alternative with an all-in-one arterial access and closure port system (ACS) to provide fail-safe percutaneous entry and exit into any artery.ACS opens the door for using high flow, high pressure arteries such as the carotid artery, an important access point.

Suggested uses

·Integrated all-in-one arterial access and closure system

·Safer access and exit even into high flow arteries such as the carotid with reduced risk

·Faster clot retrieval in emergent stroke revascularization cases

·Can be applied in percutaneous arterial access with interventional radiology, neurointervention, endovascular surgery and endovascular neurosurgery

Features/Benefits

·More efficient with integrated all-in-one system.

·Safer and easier to use and provides reliable, fail-safe arterial closure.

·Can be used in complicated cases such as high flow arteries such as the carotid.

·Reduction post-procedure monitoring time and complications.

·Allows faster clot retrieval in emergent stroke revascularization cases.

Technology Description

The researchers provide an all-in-one arterial access and closure system (ACS) having a port to provide fail-safe percutaneous entry and exit into any artery. ACS also streamlines any procedures/interventions via a percutaneous endovascular/interventional route. ACS potentially opens the door for using high flow, high pressure arteries such as the carotid artery for medical procedures. The proposed ACS device allows for convenient vascular closure. It is believed that this ACS device can be used for percutaneous arterial access with interventional radiology, neurointervention, endovascular surgery and endovascular neurosurgery.
