Abstract

See full text

A vascular closure device may comprise an elongate shaft, a vascular sealing structure, and a carriage. The vascular sealing structure may be located on the elongate shaft and configured to apply a pressure to an interior wall of a lumen. The carriage may be slidably coupled to the elongate shaft, and at least one elastically deformable structure may be configured to transfer at least a portion of a force applied to the carriage to the elongate shaft. A method of vascular closure may comprise positioning a vascular sealing structure located on the elongate shaft within a lumen, transferring at least a portion of a force applied to a carriage to the elongate shaft via at least one elastically deformable structure, and applying a pressure to an interior wall of the lumen with the vascular sealing structure to close a vascular opening.
