Elegantly Simple, Mechanical and Physiological Hemostasis
VASCADE VCS Is Safe, Effective and Easy to Use
VASCADE offers superior safety and efficacy as compared to manual compression. Additionally, VASCADE is easy to use and provides these benefits:
Simple-to-use technique with no sheath exchange to easily deploy collagen
Unique design maintains collagen patch position during sleeve retraction and device removal
Patented disc technology efficiently locates arteriotomy or venotomy for precise placement and release of pre-loaded patch
Proven technology that has been used in more than 500,000 procedures
Fully-integrated femoral access closure system
Dual Method of Action Accelerates Hemostasis
Comparison of Extravascular Patch Materials Increase in Volume From Dry State to Hydrated State3,4
Benefits of Mechanical Hemostasis
VASCADE provides tamponade as a result of rapid expansion of collagen in presence of fluid.3,4 Approximately 13x expansion in collagen patch ensures tissue tract is sufficiently filled and provides mechanical hemostasis.
In Vitro Activated Clotting Time (ACT) Using Porcine Blood in the Presence of Extravascular Patch Materials3,5
Benefits of Physiological Hemostasis
VASCADE accelerates coagulation by leveraging natural thrombogenic properties of collagen to enhance coagulation. In vitro testing demonstrates VASCADE collagen decreases clotting time in both heparinized and non-heparinized blood as compared against control (porcine blood).3,5
