" these, like drugs, before being placed on market, they must be certified as safe and effective for their field of action, through clinical studies and examinations at authorized facilities.
Medical devices are grouped, according to their complexity and the level of risk for the patient, in four classes: i, iia, iib and iii.
Basically, medical devices can be grouped into two macrocategories: invasive and non-invasive.
Invasive medical devices are those intended to penetrate, even only partially, into the body; non-invasive devices are those which do not enter human body, neither through orifies, nor through the skin. In their time, the invasive devices are divided into:
1. Devices that penetrate body through orifices.
2. Surgical-type devices, which penetrate through body surface in context of surgical operations or outside them.
3. Implantable devices, intended to be placed inside human body, through a surgical intervention.
The complex national legislation, issued for the adjustment to specific cee directives, is aimed to guarantee safety and performance of medical devices, as well as to prohibit the marketing of products that may compromise health of cee-markers. The manufacturer must be able to prove that the device is functional under its normal conditions of use, foresee risks and frequency of possible adverse events, in order to reduce them to a minimum compared with beneficiaries. Which needs a simple self-certification, is recognizable by simple cee mark. If we have a brand accompanied by four digits, we are in presence of medical devices in another class, certified by a notified body and identified by its number.
