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 Population Description Subjects will be recruited in accordance with the approved indication for use and will only include those subjects who are

within the new age indication (18-21 years). Subjects will be considered enrolled at the time of informed consent.

Implanted subjects must meet the registry eligibility criteria and will be followed for 5 years post implant. Those subjects

that are enrolled but fail to meet the eligibility criteria will be considered screen failures.
Sample Size This registry will collect safety and effectiveness data on 60 implanted subjects at minimum of 5 qualified centers in the

United States.

Data Collection An evaluation of safety will include the following:

Evaluation of device and/or procedure related adverse events over time:

relevant adverse events will be collected and reported through 5 years postimplant. An evaluation of effectiveness will include the following:

Evaluation of improvement in Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI) over time:

baseline (pre-implant) AHI compared to AHI after implant (collected and reported at annual study visits)

Evaluation of improvement in Oxygen Desaturation Index (ODI) over time:

baseline (pre-implant) ODI compared to ODI after implant (collected and reported at annual study visits)

Evaluation of improvement in T90 (defined as total sleep time spent with arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) < 90%) over time:

baseline (pre-implant) T90 compared to T90 after implant (collected and reported at annual study visits)

Evaluation of improvement of Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) over time:

baseline (pre-implant) ESS compared to ESS after implant (collected and reported at annual study visits

Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up 5 years
