Has Your Loved One Suffered An Injury Or Death During A Thrombectomy Surgery?
The Penumbra Jet 7 Xtra Flex is a popular catheter used to remove blood clots from the brain in thrombectomy procedures. It has recently been reported that the distal tip of the Jet 7 Xtra Flex catheter can expand and fracture during thrombectomy procedures, causing serious injuries and even death. This expansion and fracture has led to brain bleeds in patients originally only dealing with clots. Since the Penumbra Jet 7 Xtra Flex catheter was introduced to the market in July 2019, there have been 12 reported deaths in the MAUDE database related to surgeries where the device was used. But Penumbra only warned healthcare providers that the distal tip defect could cause vessel damage and other injuries, including death, in July 2020.

Short Answer: We don’t know yet. You need to contact us for a free consultation at 1-800-618-0012 to find out.
Long Answer: Defective medical device cases are exceedingly complex and often necessitate opinions from multiple experts. Not only are the medical issues involved in these cases complicated, but not every injury that occurs during a thrombectomy surgery is related to a defective medical device. Accordingly, it is critical to investigate not only the medical records but also the cause of the injury itself to determine if a lawsuit is potentially warranted.
Every case that comes in to our office at GoldenbergLaw receives its own evaluation. Every client and injury is unique, and therefore every potential case receives the individual attention it deserves. Because of this, there is no way we can estimate the amount we can recover for a case. However, we make every effort to maximize our clients’ recovery, taking into account the enormous burden of medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering.

“Great communication! I am very happy with my experience with GoldenbergLaw, they accomplished everything they said they would. I, like many people, was a bit uneasy about having to deal with the legal system but GoldenbergLaw made me feel very comfortable. They explained things to me layman’s terms instead of legal jargon, which made me understand how everything would go down. I highly recommend them to others.”
