Medical Device Literature Search Protocol and Review – Overview

In the intricate realm of medical devices and In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD), the significance of a well-structured medical device literature search protocol and review transcends mere research exploration. It emerges as a cornerstone for achieving compliance, with stringent safety and performance requirements set forth by regulations like the European Union Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR) 2017/745 and European Union In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (EU IVDR) 2017/746.

EU MDR Literature Review

Literature review plays a crucial role in the lifecycle management of a medical device. A systematic EU MDR literature search strategy is the backbone for the success of clinical evaluation, performance evaluation, as well as even post-market surveillance and post-market clinical/performance follow-up reports. Anchored by a systematic literature search strategy, this review is not just a phase, but also a guiding beacon toward informed decision-making.

The Power of a Robust Scientific Literature Synthesis Team

Manufacturers navigating the intricate realm of medical devices and IVDs require more than a routine literature review. A robust scientific literature synthesis team thorough with therapeutic area expertise is the compass that guides them through the labyrinth of Regulatory requirements, ensuring that compliance is not just met but, in fact, exceeded.

EU MDR Literature Search Protocol

The following phases constitute the EU MDR literature search protocol process:
