Non-Clinical Performance Assessment of Tissue Containment Systems Used During Power Morcellation Procedures
June 21, 2022
Draft Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff
This draft guidance document provides recommendations that may help manufacturers comply with the special controls related to non-clinical performance data for gynecologic and general laparoscopic power morcellation containment systems (“tissue containment systems”). Tissue containment systems are used to enable isolation and containment of tissue during a power morcellation procedure performed following a laparoscopic procedure for the excision of benign tissue that is not suspected to contain malignancy. These devices are class II (special controls) and subject to premarket notification (510(k)) requirements. Throughout this guidance, the terms “FDA,” “the Agency,” “we,” and “us” refer to the Food and Drug Administration and the terms “you” and “yours” refer to medical device manufacturers. For the current edition of the FDA-recognized consensus standard(s) referenced in this document, see the FDA Recognized Consensus Standards Database. For more information regarding use of consensus standards in regulatory submissions, please refer to the FDA 102 guidance titled “Appropriate Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards in Premarket Submissions for Medical Devices.”
