FR Recognition Number 11-346
Standard
ASTM F2706-18
Standard Test Methods for Occipital-Cervical and Occipital-Cervical-Thoracic Spinal Implant Constructs in a Vertebrectomy Model
Scope/Abstract
1.1 These test methods cover the materials and methods for the static and fatigue testing of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies in a vertebrectomy model. The test materials for most combinations of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant components can be specific depending on the intended location and intended method of attachment.

1.2 These test methods are intended to provide a basis for the mechanical comparison among past, present, and future occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies. They allow comparison of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant constructs with different methods of application to the spine. These test methods are not intended to define levels of performance, since sufficient knowledge is not available to predict the consequences of the use of a particular device.

1.3 These test methods set out guidelines for load types and methods of applying loads. Methods for three static load types and two fatigue tests for the comparative evaluation of occipital-cervical and occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies are defined.

1.4 These test methods establish guidelines for measuring displacements, determining the yield load, and evaluating the stiffness and strength of occipital-cervical or occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal implant assemblies.

1.5 It may not be possible to test some occipital-cervical and some occipital-cervical-thoracic spinal constructs 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FDA recognition of ASTM F2706-17 [Rec# 11-323] will be superseded by recognition of ASTM F2706-18 [Rec# 11-346]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 11-323] until December 28, 2019. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 11-323] will not be accepted.
