Penumbra System ™ MAX ™ Reperfusion Catheters
The Penumbra System MAX ™ Reperfusion Catheters are intended for use in the revascularisation of patients with acute ischemic stroke secondary to large vessel occlusion disease.
The 3MAX and 4MAX Reperfusion Catheters feature MAX tracking technology and are designed to be delivered over a guidewire to distal occlusions. The 5MAX combines MAX tracking technology with a larger lumen, and is delivered using a coaxial technique.
The MAX Reperfusion Catheters are intended for use with Penumbra ENGINE ™ and Hi-Flow Aspiration Tubing.
Caution: Prior to use, please refer to the Instructions for Use for complete product indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events, and detailed instructions for use.
Penumbra System – Intended Use
As part of the Penumbra System, the Reperfusion Catheters and Separators are intended for use in the revascularization of patients with acute ischemic stroke secondary to intracranial large vessel occlusive disease (within the internal carotid, middle cerebral – M1 and M2 segments, basilar, and vertebral arteries) within 8 hours of symptom onset. Patients who are ineligible for intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV t-PA) or who fail IV t-PA therapy are candidates for treatment.
Aspiration Tubing – Intended Use
As part of the Penumbra System, The Penumbra Sterile Aspiration Tubing is intended to connect the Penumbra Reperfusion Catheters to the Penumbra Aspiration Pump.
Potential Adverse Events
Possible complications include, but are not limited to, the following: allergic reaction and anaphylaxis from contrast media; acute occlusion; air embolism; arteriovenous fistula; death; device malfunction; distal embolization; emboli; false aneurysm formation; hematoma or hemorrhage at access site; inability to completely remove thrombus;
infection; intracranial hemorrhage; ischemia; kidney damage from contrast media; neurological deficits including stroke; vessel spasm, thrombosis, dissection, or perforation; radiation exposure that may lead to cataracts, skin reddening or burns from x-ray exposure.
Penumbra ENGINE – Intended Use
The Penumbra ENGINE is intended as a vacuum source for Penumbra Aspiration Systems.
