As you can see from this press release, the FDA has unearthed some troubling statistics on TMJ implant devices, such as, "the analysis described a substantial number of patients who had implants replaced within three years or less after implantation because of extreme pain." The TMJ Association understands that there are TMJ patients in need of TMJ devices; however we must be concerned that the devices fully serve their needs and do not compromise and complicate their original conditions. As the FDA is now asking manufacturers to conduct post-market surveillance studies, we thought it is an opportune time for us to convey our questions, suggestions and concerns that have been plaguing us over the years and have not been addressed despite our efforts. As a patient advocacy organization, it is our goal to accurately and adequately represent the interests of our constituents. Therefore while we are developing our questions, suggestion and concerns to present to the FDA, we invite you to send us yours ASAP which we will add to ours, if not already included.
