CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- PFM Medical, a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative, minimally invasive medical devices for cardio vascular technology, vascular access, surgery, and oncology, announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) premarket approval for its Nit-Occlud® PDA device. Nit-Occlud® PDA is a permanently implanted prosthesis indicated for percutaneous, transcatheter closure of small to moderate size patent ductus arteriosus with a minimum angiographic diameter less than 4 mm.

A Phase II Clinical Study was conducted with 378 subjects enrolled in 15 study centers throughout the U.S. under an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) to establish a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of the Nit-Occlud® PDA. Favorable results meeting all objective performance criteria from this clinical study were the basis for the premarket approval decision.
