What is the Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex?

The Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex is a medical catheter that is used to remove brain blood clots in stroke patients. The device was approved by the FDA in 2020 and has already been associated with serious problems — according a recall notice issued by the FDA, more than 200 Medical Device Reports (MDRs) have been filed in relation to the Penumbra catheters, documenting serious injuries like brain hemorrhage (brain bleed) and even death.

According to the FDA, the Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex has been linked to at least 14 deaths.

Injuries potentially caused by defective Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex catheters include:

  • Brain hemorrhage (brain bleed, cerebral hemorrhage, or intracranial hemorrhage)
  • Brain damage
  • Blood vessel damage
  • Cerebral infarction
  • Coma
  • Death

What is a Brain Hemorrhage?

A brain hemorrhage, also known as a brain bleed, cerebral hemorrhage, or intracranial hemorrhage, is a type of stroke. Brain hemorrhages occur when an artery in the brain bursts, resulting in bleeding. A brain bleed damages surrounding tissue and can cause serious brain damage and even death.

Penumbra Catheter Brain Bleed Risk

Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex Catheter Brain Hemorrhage Risk - Riddle & BrantleyThe Penumbra JET 7 Xtra Flex catheter was designed to remove clots in the brains of stroke patients. However, the manufacturer reports that the device can break, potentially causing a brain hemorrhage ­— in effect, another stroke.

Penumbra brain hemorrhage risk and the risk of other injuries are so high, in fact, that the manufacturer has issued a total recall of the defective medical devices following an FDA warning.
