Description

The BIRMINGHAM HIP◊ Resurfacing (BHR◊) System is a conservative approach to hip arthroplasty in which an all-metal bearing couple is used to preserve, rather than replace, a patient’s femoral head and neck. It was first implanted in July 1997, and was approved for use in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration in 2006. Since its introduction, there have been over 190,000 BHR implantations worldwide. Features of the BHR include: Less bone resection than conventional total hip arthroplasty Excellent, long-term clinical outcomes 6-8 Functionally optimized metallurgy and design 5,9-10 BHR bone conserving system is well documented through independent clinical studies.11-12 Additional clinical evidence supporting the BHR is published by national and regional arthroplasty registries. The BHR bone conserving procedure, combined with an implant design intended to decrease the risk of dislocation* and provide excellent survivorship, makes it a solution particularly suited to young, active male patients.
