DDD is confirmed radiologically with one or more of the following factors: (1) Patients must have greater than 2 mm of decreased disc height compared to the adjacent level; (2) scarring/thickening of the ligamentum flavum, annulus fibrosis, or facet joint capsule; or (3) herniated nucleus pulposus. The DIAM device is implanted via a minimally invasive posterior approach.
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.
