Women more likely to experience hip implant failure

Posted on September 29th, 2011 No Comments

According to the National Joint Registry Annual Report, women are more likely to experience hip failure with metal-on-metal hip implants.

5 years after having a hip replacement, women between the ages of 60- and 69-years old have a revision rate of 7.34 percent for metal-on-metal hip implants.  5 years after men in the same age range had hip implants, 5.48 percent of metal-on-metal hip implant patients had revision surgeries.

The National Joint Registry uses information from 1.1 million hip, ankle, and knee surgeries in England and Wales in their analyses.
