Abstract

Respecting market licensing authorisation recommendations is a prudent and preventive policy in respect of professional liability, but is not sufficient to avoid all of the doctor's responsibility. Conversely, not respecting the recommendations or off-indication prescribing does not necessarily make the practitioner liable. Although neither the recommendations, nor the market licensing authorisation are legally binding for the cardiologist, they can be invoked during a lawsuit. For this reason it seemed appropriate for us to study the medico-legal impact.
