Deep Vein Thrombosis significantly raises levels of mortality and morbidity resulting in increased health care expenditures and affecting patient quality of life.(1)

This webinar aims to assess the current state of DVT management: Guidelines, patient pathways, devices, and the panelists will share experience using Lightning™ computer-aided aspiration.

About Lightning

Lightning 12, powered by the Penumbra ENGINE™, combines the new Indigo System™ CAT™12 Aspiration Catheters with Lightning Intelligent Aspiration.

It features a unique clot detection technology differentiating between clot and blood. Designed to reduce blood loss and the need for clot-dissolving drugs, it may lower the risk of bleeding complications.
