 ABOUT THE EVENT

An ASTM-FDA Workshop on Absorbable Medical Devices: Lessons Learned from Correlations of Bench Testing and Clinical Performance will take place on November 28, 2012. This workshop seeks to identify test methods for establishing correlations between in vitro and in vivo absorption of devices, with an emphasis on cardiovascular indications.

Objective
The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for industry, academia, FDA to discuss test methods for establishing correlations between in vitro and in vivo degradation of absorbable implant devices, and the interaction of mechanical loading and mechanical performance with degradation. While there will be an emphasis on cardiovascular indications as part of a panel session, characterization techniques and experiences from both cardiovascular as well as non-cardiovascular devices will be discussed and are encouraged.

This workshop will be held November 28, 2012, beginning at 8:30AM at the following location:
FDA White Oak Campus
10903 New Hampshire Avenue
Building 31 Conference Center (Great Room, Room 1503)
