X-SITE Medical has CE-marked for sale in Europe its suture-based device for sealing arterial access sites following catheterisation procedures. The X-PRESS vascular closure system, which the company claims can permit early ambulation after catheterisation, works by percutaneously delivering single or multiple loops of suture across the arterial puncture. The Blue Bell, Pennsylvania company also says that it has completed a pilot study of the device in the US and has been cleared to start randomised clinical trials.
