Synopsis

In Australia more than 60,000 patients require joint replacement operations annually, 25% of which are revisions, a rate that will increase by some 10% p.a, placing an increasing burden on the health budget. Revision operations are mainly due to aseptic loosening of the implant following erosion of supporting bone.
