Angio-Seal is a vascular closure device designed for repairing arterial puncture sites used for various endovascular procedures. It has a better safety and efficacy profile compared to manual compression in the previous studies. However, there are significant complications that may arise from the use of Angio-Seal like infections, aneurysm formation, and vessel occlusion. Our case is a demonstration of one such complication. We conclude with a dicussion of the present literature available with regards to the Angio-Seal device.
