North American Neuromodulation Society

Explanted Device Disposition


The explanted device disposition project aims at developing a consensus statement regarding the disposition of explanted neuromodulation devices. Our goal would be to develop a set of procedures and policies that could be adopted throughout the US by both hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers for the benefit of patients and public health related to explanted neuromodulation devices.

Our next meetings will work on further clarification of the types of testing that may be needed and the liability/regulatory consequence of such testing. This committee is dependent on and thankful for the participation of our academic ethicists, patient advocates, industry engineers and legal counsel, as well as our government regulatory consultants.
