Vascular closure devices are frequently used after percutaneous arterial interventions to achieve hemostasis at the puncture site and facilitate early ambulation. Occasionally, complications have been reported with closure devices, such as hematoma, infection, arteriovenous fistula, pseudoaneurysm, and ischemia. This is a report of 2 cases of severe, acute-onset arterial occlusion and critical limb ischemia, one of which occurred in the upper limb following the use of a vascular closure device, and the required surgical treatment.
