The Penumbra System® is a fully-integrated system designed specifically for mechanical thrombectomy, first receiving 510(k) clearance by the FDA in December 2007. It is intended for use in the revascularization of patients with acute ischemic stroke secondary to intracranial large vessel occlusions. The Penumbra System includes Reperfusion Catheters, 3D Revascularization Device™, the Penumbra ENGINE™ aspiration source, and accessories.
The latest generation of the Penumbra System features the Penumbra RED® Reperfusion Catheters (RED 62, RED 68 and RED 72). Every case is different, and the RED family of catheter provides a full range of products that are designed to optimize lumen size and trackability for the situation.
