Comparative Effectiveness of In-Hospital Use of Recombinant Factor VIIa for Off-Label Indications vs. Usual Care
Conclusions From Available Evidence
For the uses examined, current evidence does not show that off-label use of rFVIIa reduces mortality or improves other direct outcomes. Thromboembolic events are increased by using rFVIIa to treat spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage and in adult cardiac surgery.
