Norwegian register highlights poor hip performance

Uncemented total hip arthroplasties are inferior to cemented replacements with revision approaching 40% after 10 years. Dr Leif Havelin, leader of the Norwegian Arthroplasty Register, from Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen, Norway, recently documented these findings in a review of eight different uncemented designs. The data were extracted from the Norwegian Arthroplasty Register whose main purpose is to survey and control the quality of joint implants.
