Hip Resurfacing - Devices


In 2006, the United States FDA approved hip resurfacing using the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) system, designed by British Orthopaedic surgeon Derek McMinn. On July 3, 2007, the FDA approved the Cormet hip resurfacing system made in the UK by Corin Group and marketed in the U.S. by Stryker Corporation. On November 9, 2009 the FDA also approved the Conserve-Plus hip resurfacing system made by Wright Medical Technology. There are several other manufacturers of hip resurfacing systems, mainly in Europe. Another THR and hip resurfacing system, the DePuy ASR, which had been undergoing clinical trials for hip resurfacing in the United States and marketed overseas, has been recalled as a result of having been proven to have abnormally high revision rates. A prospective patient, therefore, needs to be cautious to confirm the type of device being used has an acceptable track record. Subtle differences among the devices in terms of design, manufacturing and surgical technique can prove to be detrimental to clinical success.

Famous quotes containing the word devices:

    So that with much ado I was corrupted, and made to learn the dirty devices of this world.
    Which now I unlearn, and become, as it were, a little child again that I may enter into the Kingdom of God.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)

    There is nothing in machinery, there is nothing in embankments and railways and iron bridges and engineering devices to oblige them to be ugly. Ugliness is the measure of imperfection.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    The relationship between mother and professional has not been a partnership in which both work together on behalf of the child, in which the expert helps the mother achieve her own goals for her child. Instead, professionals often behave as if they alone are advocates for the child; as if they are the guardians of the child’s needs; as if the mother left to her own devices will surely damage the child and only the professional can rescue him.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
