Over the past two decades, reoperation rates have remained between 13 and 20 percent at 3 years in three different premarket approval studies for three different types of implant devices, indicating that high reoperation rates are not device dependent. The hypothesis of this study was that implementing specific peer-reviewed… CONTINUE READING
