Angio-Seal Issues

I too had an angio-gram and they used the Angio-Seal to plug the hole.

On the day after I could barely walk 10 feet without my right leg feeling dead.  During an ultra-sound a clot was discovered inside the artery on the seal.

My Dr said he had never seen this before - but from looking thru some posts it seems rather common.

He placed me on Cumidin and Aspirin to help the clot dissovle.

I went in for a heart cath and was released from the hospital in extreme pain. My lower right leg was cold and had no pulse. Was rushed back to hospital and rushed into emergency surgery for a blood clot that formed in the artery and the doctor told my family i could loose the leg. Was able to save my leg but now i have continuous swelling in right leg. Heart doctor can not say what happened and say he never knew i had pain and discharged. I feel hospital is negligent for sending me home home in pain. Wish i could sue
