Agenda:  The Committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on the premarket approval application for the Cartiva Synthetic Cartilage Implant (SCI), sponsored by Cartiva, Inc.  The Cartiva Synthetic Cartilage Implant (SCI) is an organic polymer-based biomaterial to mimic biologic cartilage.  The device is to be indicated for treatment of degenerative and post-traumatic arthritis in the first metatarsophalangeal joint in the presence of good bone stock along with the following clinical conditions:  hallux valgus or hallux limitus, hallux rigidus, and an unstable or painful metatarsophalangeal joint.

FDA intends to make background material available to the public no later than 2 business days before the meeting.  If FDA is unable to post the background material on its Web site prior to the meeting, the background material will be made publicly available at the location of the advisory committee meeting, and the background material will be posted on FDA's Web site after the meeting.  Background material is available at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/CommitteesMeetingMaterials/MedicalDevices/MedicalDevicesAdvisoryCommittee/default.htm.  Scroll down to the appropriate advisory committee meeting link.

Procedure:  Interested persons may present data, information, or views, orally or in writing, on issues pending before the committee.  Written submissions may be made to the contact person on or before April 13, 2016.  Oral presentations from the public will be scheduled between approximately 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.  Those individuals interested in making formal oral presentations should notify the contact person and submit a brief statement of the general nature of the evidence or arguments they wish to present, the names and addresses of proposed participants, and an indication of the approximate time requested to make their presentation on or before April 5, 2016.  Time allotted for each presentation may be limited.  If the number of registrants requesting to speak is greater than can be reasonably accommodated during the scheduled open public hearing session, FDA may conduct a lottery to determine the speakers for the scheduled open public hearing session.  The contact person will notify interested persons regarding their request to speak by April 6, 2016.
