Clinical evaluations of medical devices mean: The objective analysis and evaluation of clinical data on a specific medical device. The aim of the evaluation is to demonstrate the performance and safety of the medical device in use.
The evaluation is based on clinical data from the scientific literature or data from clinical trials.
The clinical evaluation is part of the conformity procedure for medical devices, which leads to the CE marking. The clinical evaluation is part of the technical documentation or medical device file. It is updated at regular intervals after the medical device has been placed on the market - taking into account the results of market observation and experience with the medical device.
The manufacturer of a medical device must demonstrate compliance with the basic requirements for the medical device as part of the approval process and after placing it on the market. In this context, the clinical evaluation helps to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the medical device, taking into account the applicable regulations. The following is determined:
The clinical evaluation is based on scientifically based clinical data. If these are already available to a sufficient extent, the clinical evaluation can be carried out using literature or database searches (including reference products). However, there is a growing demand for data from clinical trials and clinical studies.
Various sources and databases are used to determine the clinical data, e.g .:
Of the multitude of regulations, the following are particularly noteworthy:
Further regulations apply to clinical trials - e.g .:
