Abstract: The Australian Orthopaedic National Joint Replacement Registry (AOANJRR) was first established in 1999, becoming national in mid-2002. Since then, the Registry has collected information on over 1.3 million joint replacement procedures. The Registry uses Kaplan-Meier estimates of survivorship to describe the time to the first revision and hazard ratios, calculated using Cox proportional hazards models adjusting for age and gender, are used to compare the rate of revision between groups. These methods will be described and examples provided of how the interpretation of the analyses has been instrumental in influencing clinical practice in terms of patient selection and for identifying prostheses with higher than expected rates of revision.
