International primary hip arthroplasty registry review: findings from current reports.

We present key information from international registries in relation to primary total hip arthroplasty. The specific questions of interest include which bearings are superior in total hip arthroplasty (THA), which fixation types are optimal, do any specific implants perform better than others, and what is the latest update in the hip fracture setting? This is a comprehensive review of the major English-speaking hip arthroplasty registries across the globe. Key trends and developments in implant performance are identified and presented in the current article. Key points from review of all registries confirm that ceramic-on-polyethylene and metal-on-polyethylene continue to be the commonest bearings. The use of cemented femoral stems is increasing across most regions. Hybrid fixation is now the commonest fixation method in the UK for the first time in registry history. Uncemented femoral stems have a higher early revision rate for periprosthetic fracture than cemented stems across most regions. Dual mobility (DM) bearings are increasing in use and show higher early revision rates than unipolar bearings-they tend to be used for more complex indications (fracture/tumor/revision) and show similar revision rates to unipolar bearings when used exclusively in primary elective THA for osteoarthritis. We present current trends in THA based on current registry data from across the globe. Clinical signals of concern are emerging for THA uncemented femoral stem fixation and DM bearings in specific clinical contexts. These signals should be monitored across the literature in order to reduce the overall revision burden.
