Computer-Aided Peripheral Thrombectomy
Penumbra’s Indigo™ Aspiration System, launched in 2014, is designed to remove clot from arteries and veins in the peripheral vasculature, and for the treatment of pulmonary embolism.
A minimally-invasive device, Indigo System enables the restoration of blood flow in such cases as acute limb ischaemia and venous thrombus. The Indigo System utilises the Penumbra ENGINE™ Aspiration Source capable of delivering nearly pure, continuous vacuum (-29 inHg or 98.2 kPa)a to our catheters, enabling thrombus removal in vessels of various sizes. The Indigo System with Lightning™ Aspiration Tubing is a computer-aided aspiration system powered by Penumbra ENGINE.
