Penumbra announces commercial availability of the Penumbra JET 7 reperfusion catheter with XTRA FLEX technology, at the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery (SNIS) 16th Annual Meeting in Miami, USA.
Penumbra JET 7 with XTRA FLEX technology is used with the Penumbra ENGINE in the fully integrated Penumbra System – an aspiration-based mechanical thrombectomy system that enables physicians to extract thrombus in acute ischemic stroke patients.
The Penumbra JET 7 reperfusion catheter with XTRA FLEX technology is the latest advancement in the Penumbra System JET – ENGINE family of products, which was launched last September. As the Penumbra System’s eighth generation reperfusion catheter for proximal large vessel occlusions, the catheter is designed for advanced trackability and navigation, and maintains the large 0.072” lumen. Penumbra JET 7 with XTRA FLEX technology, together with the power of the Penumbra ENGINE, are designed to maximise thrombus removal force.
Initial clinical experience with the Penumbra JET 7 with XTRA FLEX technology will be shared at SNIS on Monday, 22nd of July, by Donald F Frei, director of Neurointerventional Surgery, Swedish Medical Center, Englewood, USA.
