Meeting Date: 12/12/13-12/12/13

Meeting Details:

On December 12, 2013, during Session I, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of spinal sphere devices. These devices are spheres manufactured from metallic (e.g., cobalt chromium molybdenum) or polymeric (e.g., polyetheretherketone) materials. They are intended to be inserted between the vertebral bodies into the disc space from L3-S1 to help provide stabilization and to help promote intervertebral body fusion. During the arthrodesis procedure, they are to be used with bone graft. These devices are not intended for use in motion-sparing, non-fusion procedures. Spinal sphere devices are considered preamendment devices because they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. Spinal sphere devices are currently regulated under the heading of "Intervertebral Fusion Device with Bone Graft, Solid-Sphere, Lumbar", Product Code NVR, as unclassified devices and reviewed under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. FDA is seeking committee input on the safety and effectiveness of spinal sphere devices and the regulatory classification for spinal sphere devices. On December 12, 2013, during Session II, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the reclassification petition received on November 20, 2012, from DEKA Research & Development Corp. requesting that FDA reclassify stair climbing wheelchairs (21 CFR 890.3890) from Class III to Class II. A stair-climbing wheelchair is a device with wheels that is intended for medical purposes to provide mobility to persons restricted 3 to a sitting position. The device is intended to climb stairs. On June 12, 2013 (78 FR 35173), FDA issued a proposed order which, if made final, would reclassify stair-climbing wheelchairs as Class II subject to premarket notification (510(k)) and special controls. The petitioner has one stair-climbing wheelchair approved, the iBot (P020033), and it is indicated for the following: to provide indoor and outdoor mobility in confined spaces, at an elevated height, climb curbs, ascend/descend stairs, traverse obstacles, travel over a wider variety of terrain, and negotiate uneven/inclined surfaces. Stair-climbing wheelchairs are preamendment devices because they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. Stair-climbing wheelchairs are currently regulated as Class III devices. A call for premarket approval (PMA) applications was issued on April 13, 2000 (effective July 12, 2000) (65 FR 19834). The committee's discussion will include recommendations regarding the regulatory classifications noted above. The committee will also discuss whether the proposed special controls are adequate to reasonably ensure the safety and effectiveness of stair-climbing wheelchairs. On December 12, 2013, during Session III, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the possible reclassification of mechanical wheelchairs (21 CFR 890.3850) from Class I, currently subject to premarket notification (510(k)), to Class II, subject to special controls. The mechanical wheelchairs are being considered for exemption from premarket notification (510(k)) requirements. A mechanical wheelchair is a manually operated device with wheels that is intended for medical purposes to provide mobility to persons restricted 4 to a sitting position. No proposed order has been issued for this proposed change in classification. Mechanical wheelchairs are preamendment devices because they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. Mechanical wheelchairs are currently regulated as Class I devices that are subject to premarket notification (510(k)) requirements (48 FR 53041). The committee will discuss whether general and/or special controls are appropriate to demonstrate a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of mechanical wheelchairs and whether, if reclassified to Class II, these devices should be exempt from premarket notification (510(k)) requirements.

On July 24, 2013, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information related to the premarket approval application for the Kineflex/C Cervical Artificial Disc sponsored by SpinalMotion. The Kineflex/C is a metal-on-metal (cobalt chrome molybdenum alloy) cervical total disc replacement device. The Kineflex/C is indicated for reconstruction of the intervertebral disc at one level from C3-C7 following single-level discectomy for intractable radiculopathy or myelopathy due to a single-level abnormality localized to the disc space. On July 25, 2013, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information related to the premarket approval application for the Kineflex Lumbar Artificial Disc sponsored by SpinalMotion. The Kineflex Lumbar Artificial Disc is a metal-on-metal (cobalt chrome molybdenum alloy) lumbar total disc replacement device. The Kineflex Lumbar Artificial Disc is indicated for reconstruction of the intervertebral disc at one level (L4-L5 or L5- S1) following single-level discectomy for lumbar degenerative disc disease (DDD) where DDD is defined as discogenic back pain with degeneration of the disc as confirmed by patient history, physical examination, and radiographic studies.

On July 6, 2012 (77 FR 39953), FDA issued a proposed rule which, if made final, would make Shortwave Diathermy 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 requesting a change in classification. The reclassification petitions are available for public review and comment at www.regulations.gov under docket number FDA-2012-N-0378.

On March 23, 2010, the committee will discuss and make recommendations on issues relevant to FDA's reevaluation of the ReGen Collagen Scaffold (CS) device (marketed as the Menaflex[reg]), which FDA cleared in K082079 on December 18, 2008, sponsored by ReGen Biologics, Inc. The indications for use statement for this device states that the device is intended for use in surgical procedures for the reinforcement and repair of soft tissue injuries of the medial meniscus. In repairing and reinforcing medial meniscal defects, the patient must have an intact meniscal rim and anterior and posterior horns for attachment of the mesh. In addition, the surgically prepared site for the CS must extend at least into the red/white zone of the meniscus to provide sufficient vascularization. The CS reinforces soft tissue and provides a resorbable scaffold that is replaced by the patient's own soft tissue. The CS is not a prosthetic device and is not intended to replace normal body structure.

Meeting Date: 8/16/16-8/16/16

.

Meeting Details:

On August 16, 2016, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the appropriateness of clearing or approving of over-the-counter (OTC) diagnostic tests for the detection of pathogens causing infectious diseases, focusing on respiratory and sexually transmitted infections (STI). Currently, there are no OTC diagnostic tests for infectious diseases cleared or approved by CDRH. The committee will evaluate the risks and benefits to individual patients and to public health associated with clearing or approving OTC diagnostic tests for infectious diseases. Serious risks such as false negative results, false positive results, patient loss to medical followup, and the impact on surveillance of reportable infections will be addressed. Potential benefits such as reduction of infection transmission and increased access to testing will be discussed as well. The committee will also make recommendations on clinical study design, analytical study design, and acceptable performance criteria applicable to respiratory and STI diagnostic devices.
