Study of Pinnacle Total Hip Replacements (THR) Concludes High Failure Rate at 10-Years
On June 1st at the EFORT Congress in Vienna, PhD student Gulraj S. Matharu of the University of Oxford presented findings from a study of Pinnacle’s metal-on-metal total hip replacements. He concluded that statistically, patients who underwent THR with the Pinnacle prosthesis had a significantly greater risk of implant failure if they had bilateral surgery or were operated on in or after 2006. “This supports the recent and serious concerns about potential manufacturing differences in more recent years,” Matharu said.
