Wright Hip Replacement Studies

Many patients experiencing complications from Wright hip replacement failure have had to undergo hip revision surgery. Statistics from the UK National Joint Registry show that the revision rate for the Wright Conserve hip replacement was 8.35% after five years.

In a 2009 annual report, the Australian National Joint Replacement Registry noted that the revision rates of the Wright Conserve and Profemur hip replacements are far higher than average hip replacement revision rates.
