AJRR Activity at the International Congress of Arthroplasty Registries

Published June 2019

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Registry Program staff and surgeon leadership attended the 8th International Congress of Arthroplasty Registries from June 1-3 in Leiden, the Netherlands. The congress is the annual meeting of the International Society of Arthroplasty Registries (ISAR), which the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) is a member.

AJRR data continue to become more comprehensive and robust, which helps for AJRR's prescence to be felt in the global orthopaedic field. In fact, for the first time, AJRR data were used for six podium, manuscript, and poster presentations at the meeting, which included three presentations from AJRR Steering Committee Chair Kevin J. Bozic, MD, MBA:

  • Where are the Majority of Periprosthetic Joint Infections Managed? Outcome Data from the AJRR
  • Achievement of Meaningful Improvement of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures for Primary Total Hip and Knee Arthroplasties
  • Hip Arthroplasty Trends by Region as Reported to the AJRR

He also presented a poster titled, “Total Knee Arthroplasty Revision Rates by Region as Reported to the AJRR.”

AJRR Medical Director David G. Lewallen, MD, gave a podium presentation titled, “Trends in Hemiarthroplasty Fixation Preference by Hospital Size and Teaching Affiliation as Reported to the AJRR.”

AJRR Research Project Subcommittee Chair Richard L. Illgen II, MD, presented, “Effect of Hospital Size and Teaching Affiliation on Revision and Migration Rates Reported in the AJRR for Total Hip Arthroplasty.”

Summaries of presentations given at the ISAR annual meeting will be covered in future blog posts and materials from the AAOS Registry Program.
