I think extended external groin compression in patients undergoing cardiovascular interventions is by far, one of the most common dreadful memories that patients have afterwards. We have done major steps in avoiding this when we do arterial access using a multitude of closing devices. The problem is now more prominent with the increasing use of large-bore venous access for a multitude of new procedures. The Venock device will be the next step solution to improve further patient satisfaction

Arterial closure devices have tremendously improved the post-interventional recovery process by saving time and resources, decreasing patient discomfort, and eliminating complications like hematoma. I am looking forward to seeing the same benefits in large bore venous closure.
The Venock device will attain large bore venous closure in under a minute, thus saving time and money, while significantly reducing patient discomfort and time to discharge when compared to the recovery from manual compression.

Large bore venous closure has long been a drain on time and resources during many of my procedures. I am thrilled to hear that Venock is taking on this important task and am convinced their approach will produce a robust and effective device that is closing large bore venous punctures within minutes.
My patients tell me that their only negative memory after an interventional procedure is being bedridden with a compression bandage and suffering from a hematoma and considerable pain in their groin. I am eager to provide a solution which will end this pain.

Large-bore femoral venous access is becoming more commonplace, but access closure still often requires hours of postprocedural monitoring and bedrest.
I am happy to hear that Venock is developing a large bore venous closure that facilitate early hospital discharge for this fast-growing patient population.
