S&N distances itself from metal-on-metal hip implant safety furore with BHR clinical results

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Smith & Nephew has reported that 99% of patients receiving its Birmingham Hip resurfacing (BHR) system were "satisfied" or "extremely satisfied" 10 years after implantation. The company believes the results, from the first 400 UK recipients of the device, will help it distinguish the BHR implant from other metal-on-metal (MoM) hip products, which have been dogged by safety concerns.
