Meeting Date: 10/8/14-10/9/14

.

Meeting Details:

On October 8, the committee will discuss, make recommendations and vote on information related to the premarket approval application regarding the Boston Scientific Corporation’s WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Closure Technology. FDA is seeking committee review and recommendations regarding new clinical data and associated additional adverse events including stroke that have become available since the previous advisory committee meeting on the WATCHMAN device, which was held December 11, 2013. The WATCHMAN LAA Closure Technology is a percutaneously delivered permanent cardiac implant placed in the left atrial appendage. This device is indicated to prevent thromboembolism (TE) from the left atrial appendage. It may be considered for use in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation who are eligible for warfarin therapy to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism based on CHADS2 (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age >75 years, diabetes, and prior stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA)) or CHA2DS2-VASc (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age >75 years, diabetes mellitus, stroke/TIA/TE, vascular disease, age 65-74, and sex category) scores. On October 9, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of more-than-minimally manipulated allograft heart valves (MMM Allograft HVs). A MMM Allograft HV is a human valve or valved conduit that has been aseptically recovered from qualified donors, dissected free from the human heart, and then subjected to a manufacturing process(es) that alters the original relevant characteristics of the tissue (21 CFR 1271.3(f), 21 CFR 1271.10(a)(1), and 21 CFR 1271.20). The valve is then stored until needed by a recipient. An example of such a manufacturing process is one that intentionally removes the cells and cellular debris with the goal of reducing in vivo antigenicity. MMM Allograft HVs are considered preamendment devices because they were found substantially equivalent to devices in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Device Amendments became effective. MMM Allograft HVs are currently regulated under Product Code OHA, ‘‘Heart Valve, More than Minimally Manipulated Allograft,’’ as unclassified devices and reviewed under the premarket notification, 510(k), authority (21 CFR part 807). FDA is seeking committee input on the safety and effectiveness of MMM Allograft HVs and the regulatory classification for MMM Allograft HVs.
