Great comprehensive presentation on the ASR hip joint

http://research.ncl.ac.uk/metalhip/resources/ASR%20artificial%20hip%20joint%20history%20and%20results%20tom%20joyce.pdf

Several key points I found interesting:

  • 2007 joint hip registry from Australia:  ASR has 2x the risk of revision vs other resurfacing procedures
  • 2008 joint hip registry from Australia: 6.0 revision rate for the ASR over 3.5 years
  • 2009 joint hip registry from Australia: 8.7 revision rate for the ASR over 5 years
  • 2010 joint hip registry from Australia: 12% revision rate for the ASR over 5 years

Great slide show of about 45 slides.  Excellent done by medical professionals.
