Article from Business Week and Bloomberg News:

First couple paragraphs:

A wearable artificial kidney and two other devices to treat renal failure will get fast-track reviews under a program U.S. regulators say can cut the time it takes to get “breakthrough” medical technology to market.

The Food and Drug Administration chose the three devices -- a valve system, an implant and the artificial kidney -- from 32 applications competing to be in the expedited-review program, the agency said in a statement today. The FDA proposed the Innovation Pathway, a priority review process for “new, breakthrough medical devices,” in February 2011.
