The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Boomerang
percutaneous closure device following diagnostic cerebral angiography or neurointerventional
Very few publications have evaluated this relatively novel percutaneous closure device.
The purpose of this study is to document our experiences using the Boomerang closure device.
Several different closure devices are used in the department of Radiology. A closure device
is something that is placed in the artery in the leg just prior to removing the catheters
from your leg at the end of the imaging or treatment procedure that is to be performed in
the Department of Radiology. The devices used are all FDA approved. This study will
compare the Boomerang device (a newer FDA approved device) to the other older devices
currently being used. You may not have the Boomerang device used in your procedure;
however, the Boomerang device is used in almost all of our patients undergoing a neuro
imaging or treatment procedure. The neuroradiologist will determine which device if any is
best for you based on the size of your artery, your medical condition etc. We will only
collect data about you and your procedure if the Boomerang device is used.
