Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess the post-market experience of the Penumbra System at several academic and community hospitals. The Penumbra System is a new generation of mechanical devices designed to reduce clot burden in acute stroke due to large vessel thromboembolism. It was recently approved for commercial use in the US and Europe, indicated for the revascularization of occluded large vessels in acute ischemic stroke.

Methods and Materials: This study …
