Several factors affect the outcome of joint replacement surgery. Most important is the skill and experience of your surgeon. Next is the patient and his/her motivation. Thirdly, is the implant. There are joint registries around the world which track the performance of various implant systems. For our anterior hip replacements, we primarily use a Pinnacle Cup and Corail Femoral Stem.
The National Joint Registry of the United Kingdom reviews data from England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. In the 2018 data the Pinnacle/Corail system had a 42% reduced risk of revision when compared to all other cementless hip systems and a 12% reduced risk of revision when compared to cemented hip replacements. These best-in-class results give reassurance to patients and family for those undergoing hip replacement surgery. Read on to learn more about these successful options: Corail Pinnacle 2018 Results
