FR Recognition Number 11-343
Standard
ASTM F2346-18
Standard Test Methods for Static and Dynamic Characterization of Spinal Artificial Discs
Scope/Abstract
1.1 These test methods specify the materials and methods for the static and dynamic testing of artificial intervertebral discs.

1.2 These test methods are intended to provide a basis for the mechanical comparison among past, present, and future non-biologic artificial intervertebral discs. These test methods allow comparison of artificial intervertebral discs with different intended spinal locations (cervical, thoracic, and lumbar) and methods of application to the intervertebral spaces. These test methods are intended to enable the user to mechanically compare artificial intervertebral discs and do not purport to provide performance standards for artificial intervertebral discs.

1.3 These test methods describe static and dynamic tests by specifying load types and specific methods of applying these loads. These tests are designed to allow for the comparative evaluation of artificial intervertebral discs.

1.4 These test methods do not purport to address all clinically relevant failure modes for artificial intervertebral discs, some of which will be device specific. For example, these test methods do not address the implant's resistance to expulsion or implant wear resistance under expected in vivo loads and motions. In addition, the biologic response to wear debris is not addressed in these test methods.

1.5 Requirements are established for measuring displacements, determining the yield load or moment, and evaluating the stiffness of artificial intervertebral discs.

1.6 Some artificial intervertebral discs may not be testable in all test configurations.

Extent of Recognition
Complete standard
Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.
Transition Period
FDA recognition of ASTM F2346-05 [Rec# 11-243] will be superseded by recognition of ASTM F2346-18 [Rec# 11-343]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 11-243] until December 28, 2019. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 11-243] will not be accepted.
