In this episode of Mike on Medtech with Mike Drues, president of Vascular Sciences, we discuss many of the concerns and issues involved with the off-label use of a medical device. Further, we talk about the advertising and promotion of such use, what’s permitted, and what will get a company in trouble. Specifically, the following questions are addressed:

  • What is off-label use as it relates to a medical device?
  • What are the limitations of off-label use? Where is the real line between what’s allowed and what’s not?
  • How are off-label use and real-world evidence connected?
  • Can a device manufacturer advertise off-label use without going to jail?
  • How might FDA’s view of advertising off-label use change in the future?
