The CardioMEMS Champion Heart Failure Monitoring System (CardioMEMS, Atlanta, Georgia) is a permanently implantable pressure measurement system designed to wirelessly measure and monitor pulmonary artery (PA) pressure and heart rate in heart failure (HF) patients to guide ambulatory HF management and to reduce HF hospital stays. On December 8, 2011, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Circulatory System Device Panel reviewed the CardioMEMS Champion HF Monitoring System premarket approval (PMA) application. The majority of Panel members agreed that that the discussed monitoring system is safe for use in the indicated patient population. However, new information reported by the FDA with regard to preferential support in management of patients in the treatment group raised concerns among the Panel members with regard to potential bias in analyzing the efficacy of the device itself. Additionally, Panel members raised concerns with regard to the efficacy of the device in certain patient subpopulations. Hence, most Panel members decided that there was not reasonable assurance that the discussed monitoring system is effective. This summary aims to describe the discussions and recommendations made during this meeting.
