Cardiovascular implants - Endovascular devices - Part 1: Endovascular prostheses
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
This document specifies requirements for the evaluation of endovascular systems (prostheses and delivery systems) and requirements with respect to nomenclature, design attributes and information supplied by the manufacturer based upon current medical knowledge. Guidance for the development of in vitro test methods is included in an informative annex to this document. This document can be considered as a supplement to ISO 14630, which specifies general requirements for the performance of non-active surgical implants.
This document is applicable to endovascular systems used to treat aneurysms, stenoses or other vascular anomalies or pathologies (e.g. dissections, transections) or to create shunts between vessels [e.g. creation of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunting (TIPS)]. Some of the requirements are specific to endovascular treatment of arterial aneurysms or stenoses. Although uses of endovascular systems other than treatment of arterial aneurysms or stenoses (e.g. dissections, transections, shunts) are within the scope of this document, the specific requirements and testing are not described. Similarly, specific prosthesis configurations (e.g. fenestrated, branched) are within the scope, but specific requirements and testing are not described for these devices.
This document is not applicable to vascular occluders, with the exception of contra-lateral iliac artery occluders when used as an integral part of aorto-uni-iliac endovascular prosthesis. Although contra-lateral iliac artery occluders when used as an integral part of aorto-uni-iliac endovascular prosthesis are within the scope of this document, specific requirements and testing are not described for these devices.
Balloons used to achieve adequate apposition of the prosthesis with the vessel wall or overlapping components are within the scope of this document, even if they are not integral to the endovascular system. This document provides requirements beyond the requirements of ISO 10555-4, specific to the use of balloons with endovascular prostheses.
This document is not applicable to procedures and devices used prior to the introduction of the endovascular system, such as balloon angioplasty devices.
The valve component of valved conduits constructed with an endovascular prosthesis component and the combination of the valved component and the endovascular prosthesis component are excluded from the scope of this document. This document can be helpful in identifying the appropriate evaluation of the endovascular prosthesis component of a valved conduit, but specific requirements and testing are not described for these devices.
NOTE 1 Cardiac valved conduits are within the scope of ISO 5840-1.
Pharmacological aspects of drug eluting or drug coated endovascular prostheses are not addressed in this document.
NOTE 2 Vascular device-drug combination products are within the scope of ISO 12417.
This document does not address the requirements for, and the evaluation of, viable tissues and non-viable biologic materials used in the construction of endovascular prostheses.
The requirements for, and the evaluation of, degradation and other time-dependant aspects of absorbable materials used in the construction of endovascular prostheses are not addressed in this document.
NOTE 3 Absorbable materials are within the scope of ISO/TS 17137 and ISO/TR 37137.
