AJRR: Study on Hospital Size, Revision Procedure Correlation
The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), part of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) registries portfolio, has conducted a novel (unpublished) study analyzing the correlation between hospital size, the reason for revision (or re-do) surgery, and where total joint arthroplasty (TJA) revision surgery is performed.
Most Patients Who Require Revision TJA Return to the Same Hospital
NEW ORLEANS— When total joint arthroplasty is performed at a larger hospital, most patients who require revision surgery within the first postoperative year return to the same hospital, according to research presented in a poster at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting.

American Joint Replacement Registry Study Links Hospital Size, Total Joint Revision — 6 Things to Know
The American Joint Replacement Registry conducted the first study analyzing the correlation between hospital size, where total joint arthroplasty revision surgery is performed and the reason for the revision.
Here are six things to know.
AJRR Conducts Study on Hospital Size and Revision Procedure Correlation
The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), a hip and knee replacement database part of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) registries portfolio, has conducted a study analyzing the correlation between hospital size, the reason for revision (or re-do) surgery, and where total joint arthroplasty (TJA) revision surgery is performed. The link between these three factors has not been studied extensively until now.
The Rationale for Registries
At yesterday’s symposium “What Can a Registry Do for Me?” a dozen panelists representing both the burgeoning U.S. registry movement and the more experienced international data repositories offered their perspectives.
Gain Insight into Improving AJRR Implementation at Today’s User Group Meeting
Registries have become a driving force in health care for quality outcomes and the fulfillment of government initiatives. Aspects of the patient experience can be drilled down and identified at a level that is more precise and illuminating than before, enabling surgeons and healthcare staff to make better decisions when it comes to patient care.
The AAOS recently joined the movement with the launch of its own portfolio of registries. The first of its databases is the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), a national hip and knee registry that was established in 2009. AJRR holds a meeting for its users each year during the AAOS Annual Meeting, and this year’s meeting will be one of the most informative yet. Because technology plays a large role in the use of registries, the AJRR User Group Network (Unet) In-person Meeting always includes a detailed update on what has changed since the last meeting and the new features that are now available.
AJRR Touts First-of-its-Kind Study on TJA Revision Rates
The American Joint Replacement Registry today released results from a study of total joint arthroplasty revision surgeries exploring the association between hospital size, reason for revision and where the surgery is performed.

Study: Revision Surgery Rate for Metal-on-Metal Hips on Rise
A new study finds the rates of revision surgery involving metal-on-metal (MoM) hips “significantly increased” in the U.K. since 2007. The study also suggests patients with metal-on-metal hips are receiving treatment for serious complications sooner than patients in the past.
