A hemostasis valve for a catheter or the like may be a self-sealing, penetrable barrier which comprises an elastomeric partition made of an integral piece. A first slit is cut on the first side of the partition, while a second slit is cut in a second, opposite side of the partition. The first and second slits are in intersecting relation to each other, each slit having a depth sufficient to permit physical interaction with each other but insufficient to extend through the entire thickness of the partition.
