The FDA has the authority to require sponsors to perform a post-approval study (or studies) at the time of approval of a premarket approval (PMA), humanitarian device exemption (HDE), or product development protocol (PDP) application. Post-approval studies can provide patients, health care professionals, the device industry, the FDA and other stakeholders information on the continued safety and effectiveness (or continued probable benefit, in the case of an HDE) approved medical devices. This database allows you to search Post-Approval Study information by applicant or device information.

Sample Size In the 2009 AOA-NJRR Annual Report there were 666 hips reportedly implanted with a DURALOC Option Metal Outer Shell in combination with an S-ROM femoral stem.

DePuy does not yet have confirmation on the number of ceramic-on-ceramic articulations.

However, based on internal data it is anticipated that approximately 450 hips will have ceramic on ceramic articulations.

Data Collection DePuy will provide the following information as the data exists and is permitted by the AOA-NJRR:

¿ Femoral Stem types

¿ The years in which the surgeries were performed

¿ Patient demographic summaries (age, gender, diagnosis, height, weight, BMI)

¿ Patient listing of reasons for revisions

¿ Revision rate

¿ Death rate

Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up The length of follow-up for this study is 10 years. DePuy will request annual ad-hoc reports from the AOA-NJRR and provide these reports to the FDA in annual progress reports.
