I am trying to use the openfda API to get a view of the data in the front end.
This is an example of a front-end search: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfMAUDE/detail.cfm?mdrfoi__id=2094110&pc=OCE
this is the API query I'm trying:
Examples of data that is missing from the API:
Frontend - Brand Name: EPICEL (CULTURED EPIDERMAL AUTOGRAFTS) GRAFT
Frontend - Device Sequence Number : 1
Frontend - 1 Device Was Involved in the Event
Essentially any device or report data (description of the event, I believe normally under mdr_text:) is missing from the search and does not seem to show up in the API query, even though it's the same mdr_report_key.
It looks like the front end joins together "Followups" to the "Initial Report" data. I was wondering how this is being joined on and how I can combine the data into something that makes sense? Should I ignore all Report_type: "follow up" records?
