    I was involved at an implant company, and did get the CE for a new implant. But the clinical trial had been set up before I became involved.

    Our device was an active implant, with substantial use being made of similarity to existing devices that the company had a long history of successfully making.

    Our clinical trial (first in man) was 6 patients x 2 centres, (12 total), monitored at 6 and 12 months.

    The plan was created after discussion with our Notified Body (one of the very few who have the expertise to deal with active implants) and our national Competent Authority (I'm in the UK - so that is the MHRA).
    The numbers involved was thought to balance the need for enough evidence with the risk of exposing more people to an untested device.
