FDA Panel to Vote On Medtronic's Cervical Disc BY ARIELLA P. GOLOMB, MD, AUGUST 23, 2006

The FDA's Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Devices Panel will be meeting on September 19, 2006. The committee will discuss, make recommendations and vote on a premarket approval application for Medtronic's Prestige ST artificial cervical disc. This metal on metal, ball and trough prosthesis is intended to treat degenerative disc disease at one level from C3-C7.

Medtronic also has the Bryan, titanium on polyurethane, ball and socket cervical disc prosthesis currently under clinical investigation in the US.

For a sense of what will take place at the panel, please refer to an earlier blog we wrote on the Charité FDA panel.
