Recently Approved Devices

The FDA has recently approved the following devices to be marketed:
RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4 Dermal Fillers
RHA Dermal Fillers are clear, colorless, injectable gels that can correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. RHA Dermal Fillers come in 3 different formulations: RHA® 2, RHA® 3, and RHA® 4. Each contains hyaluronic acid made using a Streptococcus equi bacterial strain. They also contain a small amount of local anesthetic (lidocaine) to help reduce pain of the injection.

Cheatham Platinum (CP) Stent System (Covered CP Stent and Covered Mounted CP Stent)
The Covered CP Stent is a metal framework covered with cloth to patch a blood vessel tear in patients born with heart defects. This device was approved previously to reopen a blocked or narrowed aorta. The stents are placed using a balloon in balloon (BiB) catheter (a long tube).

TriVisc is a sterile sodium hyaluronate solution that is used to relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis. It is injected into the knee join to supplement the viscous (thick) fluid in the knee.
