SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Agenda:  On September 27, 2018, the Committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on the premarket approval application sponsored by Sequent Medical, Inc. for the Woven Endobridge (WEB) Aneurysm Embolization System, which is intended to treat wide-neck intracranial aneurysms arising or located at a vessel bifurcation.  The WEB device is being evaluated in the WEB Intrasaccular Therapy Study (WEB-IT):  a multicenter, prospective, non-randomized investigation.  The Committee will be asked to review the clinical data from the WEB-IT study to help the Agency assess the safety and effectiveness of the device for the proposed indications for use.

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 website 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 website 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.
