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 Design Description Comprehensive/linked/registry-based surveillance. The objective of the surveillance is to continue to monitor the performance of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 and SAPIEN 3 Ultra THV System in the real-world setting.
Study Population Description Patients with symptomatic heart disease due to failing (stenosed, insufficient, or combined) of a transcatheter bioprosthetic aortic valve who are judged by a heart team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at high or greater risk for open surgical therapy (i.e., predicted risk of surgical mortality greater than or equal to 8% at 30 days, based on the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) risk score and other clinical co-morbidities unmeasured by the STS risk calculator).
Sample Size All consecutive patients treated within the first 3 years after the PMA approval that are entered into the TVT Registry (enrollment period).
Data Collection (1) device success (intra-procedure); (2) all-cause mortality, all stroke, life-threatening/major bleeding, new requirement for dialysis, peri-procedural myocardial infarction, and repeat procedure for valve-related dysfunction (surgical or interventional therapy) at 30 days and 12 months; (3) neurological (non-stroke), vascular complications, and quality of life (KCCQ) outcomes at 30 days and 12 months; and (4) all-cause mortality, all stroke, and repeat procedure for valve-related dysfunction (surgical or interventional therapy) at 2-10 year post implantation.
Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up 10 years
