National Medical Device Litigation Attorney

Medical devices are necessary to the survival of many patients throughout the U.S. Unfortunately, a mistake or oversight in the design, marketing or manufacturing process can lead to catastrophic injury.

Medical Device Failures Medical devices must be approved by FDA prior to use by doctors. What most people don’t realize, however, is that there are two methods of approval: pre-market approval (PMA) and “510(k)” approval, and they are very different.

With PMA approval, the manufacturer must submit a lengthy application to FDA, which details the design and clinical-test results of the product. The PMA approval process weighs the benefits of the device with the risks of using it. The manufacturer of the new device must strictly comply with any approval including the approved design, marketing, and manufacturing process.

With a 510(k) clearance, however, the manufacturer must merely show that the new device is substantially similar to a product that previously received PMA approval by FDA. Unbeknownst to patients, with a 510(k) approval, no testing is required by the manufacturer or FDA prior to the device being implanted in them. Companies strive to use this much easier (and less safe) pathway to FDA approval so they can get new products to the marketplace faster.
