VIVA 23 - We are joined online by Dr Ido Weinberg (Massachusetts General Hospital, US) to discuss the findings from the STRIKE-PE trial, sponsored by Penumbra.

This trial aimed to evaluate the real-world long-term outcomes of the Indigo Aspiration system in patients with intermediate and high-risk pulmonary embolism (PE).

Results showed a rapid, statistically significant improvement in RV/LV ratio and clinical measures, with safety maintained.

Interview Questions:

  1. What was the reasoning behind this trial
  2. Could you tell us about the Indigo Aspiration System?
  3. What was the patient population and study design?
  4. What are the key findings?
  5. What are your take-home messages 
  6. What further study is needed?

Recorded remotely from Boston, 2023.
