Dear colleague,

During the last months we were notified that there were issues with the availability of certain medical devices since the MDR (medical device regulation) was put into force in May 2021 (e.g. no availability of low-volume products like snap-fit cups, some tumor implants, plates etc).

In order to have a better overview not only within the EU, but also in the rest of Europe of this (potential) problem for our patients and to discuss this with EU regulators, it is important to collect data.

In line with EFORT’s advocacy work for European healthcare and policies, we are coordinating a survey on the effect of the MDR on both elective orthopaedic and trauma surgical interventions.

The survey takes approx. 10 minutes to complete, and we would be grateful if you would help us by taking this survey.
We thank you for your collaboration. Best wishes,
Prof. Rob Nelissen,
Prof. Dr. Li Felländer Tsai,
Prof. Dr. Klaus-Peter Günther
