The Indigo Aspiration System (Penumbra Ltd., Alameda, CA, USA), a catheter-based device intended for the endovascular removal of clots from peripheral arteries and veins, was launched in Japan to treat acute limb ischemia after the cessation of urokinase sales. The initial application of this system in Japan was on a 96-year-old male patient. He was diagnosed with acute lower limb ischemia, which was caused by an embolism from a left common iliac artery aneurysm. The treatment significantly enhanced the perfusion to his left foot. This case report elaborates on the patient’s treatment experience and discusses the indications for using the device.
