Abstract

Infectious complications of angioseal closure device are unusual but can be serious. We present 2 case reports of methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus infections complicating the use of angioseal closure device. The management of these 2 cases and the choice of antibiotic regimens are presented here. Whether these infections should be considered as foreign body endovascular infections is of concern.
