Abstract : The patent application relates to a technique for effectively closing elastomeric tubes that connect the interior of a fluid-filled vessel with the space exterior to the vessel. Thus fluid interior to the vessel cannot leak through the closure from the vessel into the exterior space nor can fluid exterior to the vessel leak through the closure into the vessel's interior.
