Peripheral Embolization

Designed for Immediate and Long-Term Mechanical Occlusion

Illustration of Embolization coils within vessels of the body

The Penumbra Peripheral Embolization System relies on mechanical occlusions designed for immediate and long-term occlusions. The Penumbra Peripheral Embolization System consists of large volume platinum-based bare metal coils designed for delivery through low profile and high-flow microcatheters for arterial and venous embolization within the peripheral vasculature.

  • Consisting of Ruby® Coil, POD®, Packing Coil, LANTERN® High-Flow Microcatheter, and Low Profile (LP) System, this system works in conjunction to help facilitate simplified and efficient embolization procedures.

    Individual results may vary depending on patient-specific attributes and other factors.

  • Mechanical Occlusion showcasing recanalization rate (details below) with text "Thicker and softer coils for dense and efficient packing"

    Penumbra coilsa are designed to be thicker and softer to densely pack, creating a mechanical occlusion with the potential for less reliance on thrombus formation. Penumbra coils have shown low rates of recanalization of 2.2%1
