Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

This prompted American manufacturers to come up with new versions, but whose inferior design and cheaper materials have a failure rate of almost 50 per cent hence the recent edict banning their use. The moral, as ever, is that Birmingham is best.

Do I detect some chauvinism in the above statement? (After all, it is the Telegraph)
I, along with probably 1000's of others, have a Biomet Recap that seems to be working just fine.  I think each surgeon uses the device they think is the most appropriate. I don't know if there's a consensus among experts about which is "the best."

You may be right, perhaps "an American manufacturer" would have been more accurate. I am no apologist for The Daily Telegraph. Interesting that this is published so soon after the hatchet job they did on MoM prostheses they did last week.

In the end, I guess the numbers establish which is "best".

Yes good to see.

I am like many here who do not feel ready for HR but are concerned that negative press will lead to HR being withdrawn as an option. Shame it didn't have more detail in, but at the end of the day, I'm not convinced an article in the Telegrath will carry much sway in the medical fraternity anyway
