Indigo System Lightning 12 is Penumbra’s next-generation aspiration system for peripheral thrombectomy.

Lightning 12 combines the new Indigo System CAT™12 Aspiration Catheter with Lightning™ Intelligent Aspiration, enabling physicians to focus on optimizing thrombus removal using the system’s unique clot detection mechanism. CAT12 is a large-lumen aspiration catheter that incorporates novel laser-cut hypotube-based catheter engineering to provide advanced deliverability and torqueability within the body. This combination of intelligent aspiration and large-lumen catheter engineering makes Lightning 12 Penumbra’s most advanced clot removal technology.

“Penumbra continues to lead the field of clot management by bringing highly innovative technology to address the challenges that we as physicians face while caring for our patients,” said Frank Arko, M.D., chief, Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute, North Carolina. “When dealing with thrombus, we have learned that it is the combination of the catheter along with powered aspiration that yields the most effective results. Lightning 12 with Intelligent Aspiration is a giant leap forward for the field of thrombectomy, and we have been very impressed with the early results at Sanger.”

“The simplicity of Lightning Intelligent Aspiration combined with the significant advancements in catheter engineering will enable us as physicians to get closer to our thrombus removal goal in a safe manner, as well as our goal of improving clinical outcomes for our patients,” said Patrick Muck, M.D., chief, Vascular Surgery, Good Samaritan Hospital, Ohio.

“Lightning 12 provides physicians with an integrated system that not only removes large amounts of thrombus but also detects and manages clot removal,” said Jay Mathews, M.D., interventional cardiologist, Manatee Memorial Hospital, Florida. “This is a very important advancement for the field of thrombus management, and our initial experience at Manatee Memorial with this technology shows us that we are now closer to single-setting care for our patients.”
