Agenda: On December 12, 2017, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information regarding the premarket approval application (PMA) for the Barricaid Anular Closure Device by Intrinsic Therapeutics. The proposed Indication for Use, as stated in the PMA, is as follows: The Barricaid is intended to be implanted following a limited discectomy, to prevent reherniation and the recurrence of pain or dysfunction. The Barricaid is indicated for patients with radiculopathy (with or without back pain), a posterior or posterolateral herniation, characterized by radiographic confirmation of neural compression using magnetic resonance imaging, and a large anular defect (e.g., between 4-6 mm tall and between 6-12 mm wide) post discectomy, at one level between L4 and S1.
