Here is the BHR revision rate compared to other devices:
Please note the 6.3% revision rate at 10 years for the BHR.
is the hip resurfacing overall revision rate by male and females.
Please note that all small men and women both have the higher revision
rates than larger people based on head size of HR components (9.3 for
males, 11.2 for females). All larger females and males have the same
similar low revision rates (3.7 for males, 3.9 for females @ 7 years) .

smaller people, but you really need to use only the very, most
experienced surgeons for good outcomes.
is a great deal of information in the national registry, but this is
really the important information in my opinion. That is why I always
use the 96% retention rate for the BHR worldwide. It is actually higher
in some other studies and surgeons personal series.
