Irish National Orthopaedic Register
The Irish National Orthopaedic Register (INOR) aims to improve the quality of services and care provided to patients having joint replacement surgery. By using patient scoring systems and recording on implant performance and patient outcomes, INOR aims to monitor the safety of implants and support hospitals should an implant recall occur.
This is the first report from the Irish National Orthopaedic Register. The overall number of hip and knee arthroplasties included in the reporting period is 6,594. There were 3,723 hip surgeries (3,344 primary and 379 revision arthroplasties) and 2,871 knee surgeries (2,677 primary and 194 revision arthroplasties).
