RED 62 is designed to navigate complex distal vessel anatomy and deliver powerful aspiration, together with Penumbra ENGINE®, for the removal of blood clots in acute ischemic stroke patients with large vessel occlusions.
Offering a new option for physicians to address arterial thrombus removal, the Indigo System Lightning 7 combines the new Indigo System CAT™7 Aspiration Catheter with Lightning Intelligent Aspiration powered by Penumbra ENGINE®
“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.
“The positive results of the EXTRACT-PE trial, the first prospective safety and efficacy study of the Indigo Aspiration System, are a step forward in building needed clinical evidence around catheter-based embolectomy in patients with acute pulmonary embolism,” said Akhilesh Sista, MD, FSIR, FAHA, EXTRACT-PE national principal investigator, chief of Vascular and Interventional Radiology at NYU-Langone School of Medicine, and vice chair of the recently published Interventional Therapies for Acute Pulmonary Embolism guidelines from the American Heart Association.
The CHEETAH study, a prospective, multi-center U.S. study to evaluate the safety and performance of the Indigo System with CAT RX Aspiration Catheter in the coronary vessels. Introduced in 2018, as part of the Indigo Aspiration System, the Indigo CAT RX Aspiration Catheters and Indigo Separator™ 4 are indicated for the removal of fresh, soft emboli and thrombi from vessels in the coronary and peripheral vasculature.
“The JET 7 Reperfusion Catheter with its advanced tracking technology and large 0.072” aspiration lumen is the most advanced device for stroke. In my clinical experience, I was able to easily and quickly navigate the JET 7 through tortuous anatomy to the face of the clot and achieve full revascularization after a single pass,” said Alejandro M. Spiotta, MD, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, S.C.
