A method is provided for closing a puncture in a wall of an artery made for the purpose of moving an elongated cardiovascular catheter into the artery. The method includes the steps of withdrawing the cardiovascular catheter from the artery while ensuring that the location of the puncture remains identified, and introducing a thrombogenic, hemostatic material so as to contact the wall of the artery at the puncture location, enabling the material to precipitate clot formation and seal the puncture. A device is also provided to employ the method.
