  • Patent number: 8398675
    Abstract: A device having an inner seal and a retaining assembly seals a puncture in a blood vessel. The inner seal is placed inside the blood vessel and seals the puncture by contacting the inner surface wall of the blood vessel. The retaining assembly has at least two loops which engage the inner seal. Each loop may remain in substantial contact with the inner seal for substantially 360 degrees of the travel of each loop. The at least two loops may lie in a plane which is parallel to both the major axis of the inner seal and a folding axis. A locking member may be slid along the retaining assembly so as to contact the outer surface wall of the blood vessel.

  • Patent number: 7824417
    Abstract: The invention provides a puncturing guide (1, 16) for guiding a puncturing needle into a target site within the body of a patient. The puncturing guide (1, 16) comprises a base plate (2, 17), a needle guide (3, 18), a retainer (4, 19) for securing the needle guide (3, 18) to the base plate (2, 17), a first segment (7, 20) of a first semi-sphere, a second segment (8, 21) of a second semi-sphere, and a needle guide (3, 18) attached to the second segment (8, 21). During a positioning operation, the second segment (8, 21) slides on the first segment (7, 20), so that the needle guide (3, 18) is movable around the center of the first semi-sphere, which is in level with the underside of the base plate (2, 17), thereby providing the possibility to position the tip of a puncturing needle at a puncturing point on the patient's skin and then, in a separate operation, set the entrance angle of the puncturing needle without changing its entrance point.

  • Patent number: 7637921
    Abstract: A femoral compression device (1; 41; 51; 61) for compressing a femoral artery of a patient is provided. The femoral compression device (1; 41; 51; 61) comprises a pressure device (7; 21; 31; 42; 55; 62), a compression member (8; 43; 56; 65) for compressive bearing against a puncture site, a base portion (3; 44; 52) provided with two opposing extensions (4, 5; 45, 46; 53, 54), to the ends of which a belt (6), which is adapted to be arranged around the patient's body, can be fixed. According to the invention, the pressure device (7; 21; 31; 42; 55; 62) is characterized by non-uniform overall action constants, such that when a low compression pressure is applied, the pressure device (7; 21; 31; 42; 55; 62) exhibits a small action constant, and when a high compression pressure is applied, the pressure device (7; 21; 31; 42; 55; 62) exhibits a large action constant.
