This is the second year that the NJR Annual Report has detailed the work of the Implant Performance Committee and the reporting of implant performance to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Implant performance

The Implant Scrutiny Committee reports Level 1 outlier implants to the MHRA. Since the committee’s formation in 2009 there have been three hip stems, three hip acetabular (cup) components and 17 hip stem/cup combinations reported. Five knee brands have been notified.

Details of these implants, when they were notified and their last usage date can be found in the downloadable document on the right – 'Trust-, Local Health Board- and unit-level activity and outcomes 2015'.
