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.

Detailed Study Protocol Parameters
Study Objectives The purpose of the post-approval study (PAS) is to evaluate the long-term safety of the single-chamber Aveir Leadless Pacemaker device (aka VR LP) using real-world evidence (RWE) methods. The study utilizes a real-world evidence method merging multiple real-world datasets from Abbott and CMS to assess the Aveir VR LP safety in a large patient population.
Study Population Adult (=22 years)
Sample Size 2100
Key Study Endpoints Primary Endpoints are:
- To assess freedom from key acute (30-day) complications post-implant procedure
- To assess freedom from key long-term (31 days through 10-year) complications post-implant procedure
Secondary Endpoints are:
- Complication rate of the Aveir VR LP for key individual acute and chronic complications
- Care of subjects at the end of device service
Descriptive Endpoints are:
- Rates of other procedure or device-related complications
- Survival at 10 years
- To assess device longevity
- Summarize study cohort demographics and comorbidities
- To assess device-device interaction
- To analyze effect of implanter experience with Aveir VR LP on safety performance
Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up 10 years
