We are running active spine, hip and knee research projects and invite the contribution of revised implants from orthopaedic surgeons. To fully understand the surgical, implant and patient factors involved in implant failure, we ask if you may collect associated clinical and imaging data for revised implants.
All implants are required to have informed, signed patient consent before any analysis is possible.
We would welcome visits to our retrieval centre by members of contributing institutions where you will see firsthand our state-of-the art measurement machines and benefit from early knowledge of some of our results. All contributors are acknowledged on our website, and in presentations and publications. For enthusiastic contributors we welcome the request to become a co-author.
