Validation of primary metal-on-metal hip arthroplasties on the National Joint Registry for England, Wales and Northern Ireland using data from the London Implant Retrieval Centre: a study using the NJR dataset.

Sabah SA, Henckel J, Cook E, Whittaker R, Hothi H, Pappas Y, Blunn G, Skinner JA, Hart AJ - Bone Joint J (2015)

Bottom Line: We were able to link 476 procedures (60.9%) recorded with the RC to the NJR successfully.The rate of registry-retrieval linkage and correct assignment of outcome code improved over time.We recommend a system for continuous independent evaluation of the quality and validity of NJR data.
