Revision rates after total ankle arthroplasty in sample-based clinical studies and national registries
Gerold Labek, Hermann Klaus, Rainer Schlichtherle-Pohle, Alexandra Williams & Mark Agreiter
MATERIALS AND METHODS
The average revision rate published in peer-reviewed scientific articles was significantly lower than the outcome achieved according to national arthroplasty registry data, which reflect actual average patient care in the respective countries. Publications by some research groups, particularly by implant inventors, show a deviation from the outcome published by other users and those shown in registry data.
