CHICAGO, Jan. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The FDA 510(k) process is a complex process allowing Companies to apply or to not apply for a new 510(k) application. The Myxo File: Part III, Published January 24, 2013 just released through Kindle Direct Publishing will provide documents from the FDA, SEC and the US patent office action to further understand the issues that go into heart device manufacturing in the US patients. It will help the patients further understand how the FDA process works, and who is protecting their interests in the operating room.
"The patients need to understand this process and the Myxo File Part III provides a step-by-step chart for a patient to ask the important questions prior to going for open heart surgery," says author Nalini Marie Rajamannan M. D. Sacred Heart Cardiology, Chicago, IL.
"My book will help to educate the citizens of the United States of America and Globally to ask the important questions prior to open heart surgery as to whether the device that will be used to repair their valve is FDA registered, cleared, approved, investigational or none of the above."
Rajamannan was inspired to create the Myxo File when the documents she accumulated over a five year quest to get the information regarding the patients ended with a search of the US SEC website. The Filings indicate the chronology of disclosures of the medical device to investors. "With my electronic file and 3-Agency Chart, you still have to take action, and ask your physicians whether you are about to be included in a clinical study to test devices prior to FDA clearance, but at least the citizens of the United States will have a guidepost to help them ask the right questions."
