The Swedish Hip Arthroplasty Register is a National Quality Register.  Since 1979 it has registered primary total hip arthroplasties performed in Sweden. One important component of the Register is that all re-operations are also registered, which makes it possible to analyse complications in the continual work of improvement.  Individual patients’ data such as age, sex, diagnosis, surgical technique and type of implant used are registered, and since 2002 patient-reported outcome such as pain relief, satisfaction and gain in health-related quality of life have been included. 

Since 2005 hemi-arthroplasties have also been registered. These are inserted mainly in patients who have sustained a femoral neck fracture.

The Register’s main job involves activity analysis, clinical quality assurance, clinical improvement work and research, aiming to give each patient optimal care.  Since 1989 the Register has been supported by the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKL) and the Western Götaland Region.  The Board and steering group are appointed in consultation with the Swedish Orthopaedic Association.  The Board consists of Associate Professor Ola Rolfson, Register Director,  MD, PhD, Professor Johan Kärrholm, Director, Scientific Chief, MD, PhD, Associate Professor  Cecilia Rogmark, Director (Hemi-arthroplasties), MD, PhD and Professor Henrik Malchau, MD, PhD.  The Board is responsible for this web site.  Read more
