BACKGROUND Radiostereometric analysis (RSA) accurately assesses arthroplasty implant performance and is routinely used for research purposes. Because of its efficacy in detecting implant failure in research subjects, we deployed the use of RSA beads for routine surveillance in all elective total hip and total knee arthroplasty patients. METHODS We retrospectively compared 143 patients who received RSA beads intraoperatively with 343 patients who did not receive RSA beads. Using RSA images, we… CONTINUE READING
