Abstract

Off-label use is frequently practiced in hip revision arthroplasty, as there may be indications for the application of implants for purposes outside the one the manufacturers intended (i.e. large bone and soft tissue defects, obesity). Patients may also benefit from selective application of mix & match in hip revision, when the exchange of one component only is necessary and the invasiveness of surgery can be reduced. Currently, there are no formal guidelines for these situations. Therefore, within a recent EFORT initiative, evidence- and consensus-based recommendations have been developed for the safe application of off-label use and mix & match in revision hip and knee arthroplasty.
