PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 30, 2010 - With close 100,000 Depuy hip implants patients at risk and now subject to a recall of their Depuy ASR hip implants it was determined to be imperative that a voluntary and independent  National Hip Recall Database be created of hip implant/replacement patients, which would allow for communications and information concerning health related issues and news detailing all hip warnings and recalls that may impact these hip implant patients.

The  National Hip Recall Registry (http://www.hiprecallregistry.com) was developed in order to better communicate critical information regarding Hip implant recalls and warnings both mandatory and voluntary directly from the FDA and Hip manufactures.

In contrast to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, who are initiating a privately funded, pilot program, called the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), in 15 hospitals to track recipients' basic information and data to serve Hip Manufactures and Doctors, the  National Hip Recall Registry was developed to serve the patients without bias of the surgeons or Hip manufactures.

Once patients enter their anonymous information concerning their hip implant, such as manufacture. model and outcome into the form available on http://www.hiprecallregistry.com,  they will automatically be kept abreast of important issues that may arise concerning their hip implant and what options might be available to them.

The Objectives of the National Hip Recall Registry are :

•   Create a Database by Patient and Hip Manufacture.
•   Provide automated means to notify Patients of warnings or recalls per the FDA and or Manufacture.
•   Gather anonymous statistics of adverse effects resulting from a specific hip replacement device.
•   Provide automated means to update hip patients on issues pertaining to a specific hip implant device.

Register Your Hip Replacement Now

In addition to registering patients who may be involved with the recent Depuy Hip Recall, the Hip Recall is also serving as an information clearing house for all Hip replacement and implant products such as those manufactured by Stryker and Zimmer.

With over close to one million hip implants performed over the last five years http://www.hiprecallregistry.com hopes to be able to reach 80% of them in the next 12 months.

The National Hip Recall Registry can be found at http://www.HipRecallRegistry.com and was created to better communicate critical information regarding recall and warning both mandatory and voluntary directly from the FDA and Hip manufactures. The Hip Recall Registry is not associated with any Hip Manufacture or Government Agency.
