Boomerang closure

  1. Our cath lab and cardiac recovery unit are trialing the Boomerang closure device as a possible replacement to Perclose and/or StarClose. It is supposedly cheaper and it doesn't leave anything behind like a suture or plug. We just started using it, but removal seems awkward and no real advantage over manual removal.
    Has anyone used this device?
    Do you like it?
    Any problems or other comments?

    Thanks for your input

    We are using them and they are great for diagnostic procedures. The hold time and the bedrest is shorter!
