My answer is no. Doctor was just doing it to see if he could place a closure device. I would still say no even though the closure device wasn't placed due to the reason above.
The following is from Medicare's NCCI manual
18. Placement of an occlusive device such as an angio seal or vascular plug into an arterial or venous access site after cardiac catheterization or other diagnostic or interventional procedure should be reported with HCPCS code G0269. A physician should not separately report an associated imaging code such as CPT code 75710 or HCPCS code G0278.
