Postmarket Surveillance Studies with David Rutledge
Play • 1 hr 21 min

In this episode, we’re going to talk about Postmarket Surveillance Studies. 

In light of the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR), medical device manufacturers are required to implement a Postmarket Surveillance (PMS) plan, which in turn may require them to conduct Postmarket Surveillance Studies. 

The importance of such studies has grown in recent years as regulators want to know about the safety and effectiveness during the lifetime of a medical device. 

To learn about Postmarket Surveillance Studies regulatory requirements, process for collecting clinical data for such studies, key elements of PMS plan, and more, I invited Dr. David Rutledge on the podcast.
