The use of the StarClose vascular closure device for puncture site hemostasis after therapeutic endovascular interventions performed through the axillary artery under anticoagulant therapy in six patients is reported. Three minor complications, including hematoma, prolonged hemostasis, and pain, occurred in three patients. Based on this limited experience, this method can be used safely for axillary artery puncture site hemostasis after endovascular procedures without significant complications.
