• Use prior to the “Use By” date.
• Use device in conjunction with fluoroscopic guidance.
• Do not advance or retract the device against resistance without careful assessment of the cause using fluoroscopy. If POD cannot be advanced or retracted, withdraw the device as a unit with the microcatheter.
• Moving or torquing the device against resistance may result in damage to the vessel or device.
• Maintain a constant infusion of an appropriate flush solution.
Potential Adverse Events
Possible complications include, but are not limited to, the following:
acute occlusion; air embolism; allergic reaction and anaphylaxis from contrast media; aneurysm rupture;
arteriovenous fistula; coagulopathy; coil herniation into parent vessel; death; device malfunction; distal embolization; emboli; embolic stroke and other cerebral ischemic events; false aneurysm formation; hematoma or hemorrhage at access site of entry; incomplete aneurysm occlusion; infection; intima dissection; intracranial hemorrhage; ischemia; myocardial infarction; neurological deficits including stroke; parent artery occlusion; peripheral thromboembolic events; post-embolization syndrome; premature device detachment; recanalization; renal failure; respiratory failure; revascularization; thromboembolic episodes; vessel spasm, thrombosis, dissection, or perforation.

Indication For Use
The Penumbra Delivery Microcatheters are intended to assist in the delivery of diagnostic agents, such as contrast media, and therapeutic devices, such as occlusion coils to the peripheral and neuro vasculature.
Contraindications
There are no known contraindications.
Warnings
The Penumbra Delivery Microcatheters should only be used by physicians who have received appropriate training in interventional techniques.
Precautions
• The devices are intended for single use only. Do not resterilize or reuse. Resterilization and/or reuse may result in ineffective catheter coating lubrication, which may result in high friction and the inability to access the target location.
• Do not use kinked or damaged devices. Do not use open or damaged packages. Return all damaged devices and packaging to the manufacturer/distributor.
• Use prior to the “Use By” date.
• Use the Penumbra Delivery Microcatheters in conjunction with fluoroscopic visualization.
• Do not advance or withdraw the Penumbra Delivery Microcatheters against resistance without careful assessment of the cause using fluoroscopy. If the cause cannot be determined, withdraw the device. Moving or torquing the device against resistance may result in damage to the vessel or device.
• Maintain a constant infusion of an appropriate flush solution.
• If flow through the device becomes restricted, do not attempt to clear the lumen by infusion. Remove and replace the device.
Potential Adverse Events
Possible complications include, but are not limited to, the following:
acute occlusion; hematoma or hemorrhage at access site; death; intracranial hemorrhage; hemorrhage; infection (at access site); distal embolization; ischemia (cardiac and/or cerebral); embolus (air, foreign body, thrombus, plaque); aneurysm perforation; false aneurysm formation; neurological deficits including stroke; vessel spasm, thrombosis, dissection, perforation or rupture; air embolism; emboli.

Indication For Use
The Ruby Coil System is indicated for arterial and venous embolizations in the peripheral vasculature.
Contraindications
There are no known contraindications.
Warnings
The Ruby Coil System should only be used by physicians who have received appropriate training in
interventional techniques.
Precautions
• The device is intended for single use only. Do not resterilize or reuse. Resterilization and/or reuse may compromise the structural integrity of the device or increase the risk of contamination or infection leading to device failure and/or cross-infection and potential patient injury, illness, or death.
• Do not use kinked or damaged devices. Do not use opened or damaged packages. Return all damaged devices and packaging to the manufacturer/distributor.
• Use prior to the “Use By” date.
• Use device in conjunction with fluoroscopic guidance.
• Do not advance or retract the device against resistance without careful assessment of the cause using fluoroscopy.
• Moving or torquing the device against resistance may result in damage to the vessel or device.

Indications for Use
The Penumbra LP Coil System is indicated for the embolization of:
• Intracranial aneurysms.
• Other neurovascular abnormalities such as arteriovenous malformations and arteriovenous fistulae.
• Arterial and venous embolizations in the peripheral vasculature.
Contraindications
There are no known contraindications.
Warnings
• The Penumbra LP Coil System should only be used by physicians who have received appropriate training in interventional techniques.
• Do not use kinked or damaged devices. Do not use opened or damaged packages. Return damaged devices and packaging to the manufacturer/ distributor.
• Do not advance or withdraw the device against resistance without careful assessment of the cause using fluoroscopy.
• If resistance is encountered when withdrawing the coil, withdraw the microcatheter until the resistance subsides.
• Do not rotate the delivery pusher during use. Rotating the delivery pusher may result in premature detachment, which could lead to coil damage, incorrect positioning, or vessel damage.
• Verify repeatedly that the microcatheter is not under stress before coil detachment. Stored forces in the microcatheter could cause the tip to move during detachment, which could lead to lesion rupture.
• Advancing the delivery pusher beyond the microcatheter tip could lead to lesion rupture.
Precautions
• The device is intended for single use only. Do not resterilize or reuse. Resterilization and/or reuse may compromise the structural integrity of the device or increase the risk of contamination or infection leading to device failure and/or cross-infection and potential patient injury, illness or death.
• Use prior to the “Use By” date.
• Use device in conjunction with fluoroscopic guidance.
• As in all fluoroscopy procedures, consider all necessary precautions to limit patient radiation exposure by using sufficient shielding, reducing fluoroscopy times and modifying radiation technical factors whenever possible.
• Moving or torquing the device against resistance may result in damage to the vessel or device.
• Maintain a constant infusion of an appropriate flush solution.
• The device may create local field inhomogeneity and susceptibility artifacts during magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), which may degrade the diagnostic quality to assess effective lesion treatment.
Potential Adverse Events
Potential complications include but are not limited to:
acute occlusion; air embolism; allergic reaction and anaphylaxis from contrast media; aneurysm rupture; arteriovenous fistula; coagulopathy; coil herniation into parent vessel; death; device malfunction; distal embolization; emboli; embolic stroke and other cerebral ischemic events; false aneurysm formation; hematoma or hemorrhage at access site of entry; incomplete aneurysm occlusion; infection; intima dissection; intracranial hemorrhage; ischemia; myocardial infarction; neurological deficits including stroke; parent artery occlusion; peripheral thromboembolic events; post-embolization syndrome; premature device detachment; radiation exposure that may lead to cataracts, skin reddening, burns, alopecia, or neoplasia from x-ray exposure; recanalization; renal failure; respiratory failure; revascularization; thromboembolic episodes; vessel spasm, thrombosis, dissection, or perforation.
