Penumbra Unveils JET 7 with XTRA FLEX Mechanical Stroke Remover

Penumbra is releasing a new stroke thrombectomy aspiration system at the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery 16th Annual Meeting in Miami. The Penumbra JET 7 Reperfusion Catheter with XTRA FLEX technology is designed to be compatible with the Penumbra ENGINE, a device that generates the vacuum necessary to suck out thrombi from within the brain.

The Penumbra JET 7 Reperfusion Catheter with XTRA FLEX technology is intended for use on proximal large vessel occlusions and features a relatively wide 0.072″ lumen.

The Penumbra System, which consists of the Penumbra ENGINE, accompanying catheters, and a 3D revascularization device, as well as additional tools, has already been approved in the United States for over a decade.
