Meeting OptionsMeeting OptionsMeeting OptionsEar, Nose, and Throat Devices Panel

Meeting Date: 4/30/15-5/1/15

Meeting Details:

On April 30, 2015, the committee will discuss and make recommendations regarding the classification of Hearing Protectors, Circumaural Hearing Protectors, Middle Ear Inflation Devices, Tactile Hearing Aid Devices, and Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses. These devices are considered preamendments devices since they were in commercial distribution prior to May 28, 1976, when the Medical Devices Amendments became effective. Hearing Protectors are currently regulated under the heading, “Protector, Hearing (Insert),” Product Code EWD, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Circumaural Hearing Protectors are currently regulated under the heading, “Protector, Hearing (Circumaural),” Product Code EWE, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Middle Ear Inflation Devices are currently regulated under the heading, “Device, Inflation, Middle Ear,” Product Code MJV, as unclassified under the 510k) premarket notification authority. Tactile Hearing Aid Devices are currently regulated under the heading, “Hearing Aid, Tactile,” Product Code LRA, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses are currently regulated under the heading, “Apparatus, Vestibular Analysis,” Product Code LXV, as unclassified under the 510(k) premarket notification authority. FDA is seeking committee input on the risks, safety and effectiveness and the regulatory classification of Hearing Protectors, Circumaural Hearing Protectors, Middle Ear Inflation Devices, Tactile Hearing Aid Devices, and Vestibular Analysis Apparatuses. On May 1, 2015 the committee will discuss key issues related to a potential pre- to post-market shift in clinical data requirements for modifications to cochlear implants in pediatric patients. These issues are categorized into three broad areas for discussion: 1. Cochlear implant changes (e.g. sound processing features, patient characteristics) that may be suitable for this pre- to post-market shift in clinical data requirements. 2. Appropriate premarket clinical data requirements to support pre- to post-market shift (e.g. leveraging clinical data from adults and/or older children.) 3. Clinical study design considerations (e.g. study endpoints and test metrics, subject characteristics) for post market studies to confirm safety and effectiveness and inform future labeling.

Meeting Date: 12/18/09-12/18/09

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on a premarket approval application, sponsored by Envoy Medical Corporation, for the Esteem Totally Implantable Hearing System. The ESTEEM is a totally implantable hearing device that is implanted in the middle ear to help hearing in patients suffering from mild to severe hearing loss that is sensorineural in origin. The Esteem System consists of three implantable components (Sound Processor, Sensor, and Driver), two external programmers (Esteem Programmer and Personal Programmer), an external Intraoperative System Analyzer (ISA) and accessories. The intended use of the ESTEEM is to alleviate hearing loss in adults by replicating the ossicular chain and providing additional gain. FDA intends to make background material available to the public no later than 2 business days before the meeting. If FDA is unable to post the background material on its Web site prior to the meeting, the background material will be made publicly available at the location of the advisory committee meeting, and the background material will be posted on FDA’s Web site after the meeting. Background material is available at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/Calendar/default.htm. Scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee link.

Meeting Date: 11/15/18-11/15/18

.

Meeting Details:

On November 15, 2018, the Committee will discuss and make recommendations on the topic “Connected and Empowered Patients: e-Platforms Potentially Expanding the Definition of Scientific Evidence.” The recommendations will address how FDA can leverage patient-driven platforms, such as social media and registries, to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. Social media and other web platform enablers are facilitating the growth of virtual patient communities. Increasingly, patients and health care consumers are using these platforms to share their health experiences and seek information from other patients and consumers, rather than their health care providers alone. Novel approaches and methodologies are being used to tap into some of these platforms as potentially rich sources of patient-generated health data, which could be used as relevant and reliable real-world evidence. This meeting will help advance FDA’s objective to assure the needs, experiences, and perspectives of patients are included as part of FDA’s deliberations involving the regulation of medical devices and their use by patients. For this meeting, FDA is seeking input from the Committee and the public on whether and how FDA can harness the emerging potential of these patient platforms to better engage patients and consumers as empowered partners in the work of protecting public health and promoting responsible innovation. In addition, FDA is seeking recommendations from the Committee on ways to leverage these platforms to disseminate as well as potentially collect and evaluate health information to and from patients and consumers.
