Meeting Date: 9/24/15-9/24/15

Meeting Details:

On September 24, 2015, the committee will discuss the risks and benefits of Bayer HealthCare’s Essure System for permanent female sterilization. The system, originally approved in November 2002, under P020014, consists of a delivery system and nickel-containing permanent implants. The implants are placed without a skin incision, through the vagina, within each fallopian tube; they elicit tissue ingrowth, which over time results in tubal occlusion.

Meeting Date: 7/10/14-7/11/14

Meeting Details:

On July 10 and 11, 2014, the committee will discuss the safety of laparoscopic power morcellator devices as it pertains to their potential to disseminate and upstage a confined, but undetected (occult) uterine malignancy during laparoscopic hysterectomy or myomectomy. FDA is convening this committee to seek expert scientific and clinical opinion on the risks and benefits of these types of devices when used for these procedures, based on available scientific data. The committee will make recommendations regarding the appropriate use, premarket testing, labeling, and other risk mitigations (including the use of containment bags) for these devices. On July 11, 2014, during the afternoon session, the committee will also be asked to discuss the regulatory classification of laparoscopic power morcellator devices when used to cut and extract tissue during gynecologic laparoscopic procedures and to assist FDA in determining the appropriate level of regulatory control necessary for this device type, including discussion of class II (special controls) or reclassification to class III (subject to premarket approval application (PMA)).

On September 8 and 9, 2011, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the safety and effectiveness of transvaginal surgical mesh used for repair of pelvic organ prolapse. FDA is convening this meeting to seek expert opinion on the risks and benefits of these devices in light of adverse events, e.g., vaginal erosion leading to pelvic pain and dyspareunia, and available information on clinical benefit. The committee will be asked to provide scientific and clinical input on the Agency's proposed premarket and postmarket regulatory strategies for these devices, including [[Page 41508]] reclassification into Class III (premarket approval), labeling improvements and postmarket surveillance studies. The committee will also consider surgical mesh used to treat stress urinary incontinence.

Meeting Details:

On November 9, 2016, during session one, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the reclassification of quantitative Cytomegalovirus (CMV) viral load devices from class III (Premarket approval) to class II (510(k)). A nucleic acid-based in vitro diagnostic device for the quantitation of CMV viral load, within the context of transplant patient management, is a post-amendment device classified into class III under section 513(f)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act )(21 U.S.C. 360c(f)(1). To date, the following product code has been established for CMV viral load devices: PAB (CMV DNA Quantitative Assay). During session two, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the appropriate initial classification for qualitative or quantitative viral load devices for Epstein-Barr virus, BK virus, JC virus, Human Herpesvirus 6, and Adenovirus infections. FDA is seeking expert recommendations to assess the potential risks and benefits of these devices when used in patients following solid-organ or stem cell transplantation.
