The Penumbra clot removal system is the brand’s third-generation vacuum pump system used to perform life-saving revascularization surgeries. For the first time, blood clots are suctioned from blood vessels through clear tubing and deposited onto integrated screens to be inspected by doctors. Its compact and portable design is simple to operate. The vacuum canister is the focal point during surgery and provides 180-degree visibility illuminated by LEDs. The device provides perfect vacuum routing, heat management, and weight distribution at the press of a button. This revolutionary device prevents heart attacks, strokes, and neurological damage.
