Summary of "Off-Label Use in Orthopaedic Surgery."

Surgeons frequently use orthopedic devices in an off-label manner. It is the responsibility of the surgeon to be familiar with the product and to use it based on scientific and clinical rationale. However, such practices are poorly publicized, and there remains paucity in the current literature surrounding the off-label use of orthopedic devices. Furthermore, the off-label use of devices is fraught with difficulty, including limitations in investigational studies and insurance reimbursement or coverage of use. Surgeons should be aware of the common off-label use in orthopedics. This review provides an overview of the off-label use in orthopedics and the obstacles associated with it; this review also offers clinical examples of its implementation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The practice of prescribing or using a drug outside the scope of the drug's official approved label as designated by a regulatory agency concerning the treatment of a particular disease or condition.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.

Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
