This European Standard specifies particular requirements for endovascular devices.
With regard to safety, this standard gives in addition to EN ISO 14630, requirements for intended performance, design attributes, materials, design evaluation, manufacturing, sterilization, packaging and information supplied by the manufacturer.
NOTE 1 Vascular occluders are not addressed in this standard. For the time being the requirements as stated in EN ISO 14630:1997 apply for these products.
NOTE 2 Due to the variations in the design of the implants covered by this standard and in some cases due to the relatively recent development of some of these implants, acceptable standardized in vitro tests and long term results of clinical trials are not always available.
Where no test method is described in this standard a complete description of the validated test method and sample preparation procedure used should be documented by the manufacturer. With regard to design evaluation, where a specific standardized test is not described, guidance is given by referring to current scientific literature (see Annex A). This standard aims to ensure that manufacturers will address all aspects of design evaluation that relate to the safety of the product. As further scientific and clinical data become available, appropriate revision of the standard will be necessary.
