Comparative Effectiveness of In-Hospital Use of Recombinant Factor VIIa for Off-Label Indications vs. Usual Care

Slide: 28 of 36

Increased Risk of Thromboembolic Events With rFVIIa Use for Adult Cardiac Surgery

There is evidence of moderate strength to suggest that the use of rFVIIa in adult cardiac surgery increases the rate of thromboembolic events when compared to usual care. Thus, current evidence of moderate strength (for thromboembolic events) or low strength (for all other outcomes) suggests that neither benefits nor harms substantially exceed each other for rFVIIa use in adult cardiac surgery.
