Meeting Date: 6/2/16-6/3/16

Meeting Details:

On June 2 and 3, 2016, the committee will discuss recent reports and epidemiologic investigations of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) infections associated with the use of heater-cooler devices during cardiac surgical procedures. FDA is convening this committee to seek expert scientific and clinical opinion related to contamination of heater-cooler devices, associated patient infections, and mitigation strategies based on available scientific information. The committee will make recommendations on: (1) the effectiveness of cleaning and disinfection methods for heater-cooler devices; (2) the amount and type of premarket data and information needed to demonstrate validation of cleaning and disinfection of heater-cooler devices in support of labeling claims and technical instructions; (3) appropriate risk mitigations to be implemented by manufacturers of heater-cooler devices and/or hospital facilities to ensure patient safety during surgical procedures where these devices are used; and (4) appropriate guidelines and/or criteria based on a risk stratification schema for notifying patients who may have already been exposed to NTM during prior cardiac surgeries. Recommendations on these issues will assist FDA in minimizing patient exposure to infections that may result from contaminated heater-cooler devices.
