Meeting Date: 4/24/14-4/24/14

Meeting Details:

On April 24, 2014, the committee will discuss the current knowledge about the safety and effectiveness of aversive conditioning devices that are intended to deliver a noxious electrical stimulus to a patient to modify undesirable behavioral characteristics. FDA is convening this committee to seek clinical and scientific expert opinion on the risks and benefits of certain aversive conditioning devices based on available scientific data and information. The Agency is considering whether to ban aversive conditioning devices that are intended to administer a noxious electrical stimulus to a patient to modify undesirable behavioral characteristics. The meeting will concern only devices classified under 21 CFR 882.5235 (aversive conditioning device, class II) that are not self-administered. Devices which deliver a noxious electrical stimulus automatically are not considered to be self-administered devices. Section 516 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 360f) sets forth the standard for banning devices. Under that provision, in order to ban a device, FDA must make a finding that a device "presents substantial deception or an unreasonable and substantial risk of illness or injury" based on all available data and information. FDA regulations provide additional details about the procedures and standards for banning a device (21 CFR part 895).

Meeting Details:

On March 23, 2012, the committee will discuss current knowledge about the safety and effectiveness of the Wingspan Stent System with Gateway PTA Balloon Catheter for the treatment of intracranial arterial stenosis. FDA is convening this committee to seek expert scientific and clinical opinion on the risks and benefits of this device based on the available premarket and postmarket data. The Wingspan Stent System with Gateway PTA Balloon Catheter is a neurovascular stent, balloon catheter, and delivery system consisting of the following components: 1. Wingspan Stent--This is a self-expanding, nitinol stent with a tubular mesh design. 2. Gateway PTA Balloon Catheter--This balloon catheter is used to predilate the lesion prior to introduction of the Wingspan Stent System into the patient. 3. Wingspan Delivery System--This delivery system is a single lumen, over-the-wire, coaxial microcatheter that is used to deliver the stent to the treatment site within the patient's artery.

Meeting Details:

On February 10, 2012, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the possible reclassification of cranial electrotherapy stimulator (CES) devices. On August 8, 2011 (76 FR 48062), FDA issued a proposed rule which, if made final, would make CES devices Class III requiring premarket approval. In response to the proposed rule, FDA received petitions under section 515(b)(2)(B) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360e(b)(2)(B)) requesting a change in classification. The reclassification petitions are available for public review and comment at www.regulations.gov1 under docket number FDA-2011-N-0504. The committee discussion will include the existing data to support CES safety and effectiveness and whether the data are sufficient to develop special controls to support regulation of these devices under Class II.

Meeting Details:

On March 12, 2010, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on a premarket approval application for the Deep Brain Stimulation System for Epilepsy sponsored by Medtronic, Inc. This device is indicated as adjunctive therapy for reducing the frequency of seizures in individuals diagnosed with epilepsy. For this device, a patient's epilepsy should be characterized by partial-onset seizures (affecting only a part of the brain when they begin), with or without secondary generalization that are refractory to antiepileptic medications. ``Secondary generalization'' is used to describe a partial-onset seizure that later spreads to the whole brain. ``Refractory'' to antiepileptic medications means that the patient's epilepsy does not respond to approved medications.
