PRISM Trial Will Be Presented

ALAMEDA, Calif. –
(NYSE: PEN), a global interventional therapies company, today
announced its presence at the upcoming 24th AIMsymposium®
to be held November 14-17 and the 43rd VEITHsymposium®

PRISM study, designed to assess the safety and efficacy of the Indigo®
System for peripheral and visceral arterial thrombi and emboli, will be

The Indigo System is a novel mechanical aspiration system for the
removal of emboli and thrombi in the peripheral vasculature. PRISM,
which began in 2014, evaluated the use of the Indigo System for patients
with peripheral occlusions secondary to acute ischemia, incomplete
reperfusion and procedure-related distal emboli, using primarily the
system’s smaller size catheters. “Multicenter Retrospective Analysis Of
Results Of Penumbra Indigo System For Mechanical Clot Aspiration From
Arteries: How It Works, Indications, Vessel Sizes And Decreased Need For
Lytics: The PRISM Registry” will be presented by Dr. James Benenati of
Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute (Florida) on Thursday, November 17,
at 4:50 p.m. in Grand Ballroom West, 3rd Floor, Session 62.

technologies at its booth (#310 and 311 – 3rd Floor Promenade),
including its latest enhancement to the Indigo System, the Advanced
Separator, which is offered with the larger size separator and designed
to be more robust and supportive for clot extraction in larger arteries
and veins in the periphery. Penumbra will also feature its embolization
product line: Ruby® Coil, POD®, POD Packing Coil
