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) of approved medical devices. This database allows you to search Post-Approval Study information by applicant or device information.

Study Design Description This is an observational registry study for patients who undergo ExAblate treatment, to collect data about the effect of ExAblate treatment on potential pregnancy occurrences in this population for two years post-treatment for purposes of labeling updates and overall safety data collection.
Study Population Description All consented patients from all participating sites who receive an ExAblate procedure or have previously undergone an ExAblate procedure for symptomatic uterine fibroids will be recruited for this registry.
Sample Size The registry is open to all who would consent at participating sites, and will be open for enrollment for two years. The study aims to enroll up to 200 patients in total. A minimum of ten sites from around the world will participate, including a minimum of six sites from the U.S.
Data Collection Main safety endpoint: Adverse events related to pregnancies, including but not limited to pregnancy outcome, and post-partum complications for the mother and infant. The nature of each adverse event, date and time (when appropriate) of onset, outcome, frequency, maximum intensity, action taken, expectedness, and causal relationship will be recorded.
Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up Up to two years after ExAblate treatment, or until pregnancy completion.

Sites should contact the subject 2 times a year (approximately every 6 months) for 2 years after the ExAblate procedure.
