Little is known about the variation in complication rates among U.S. hospitals that perform elective total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total kne... [more]
The incidence of primary (Fig. 1-A) and revision (Fig. 1-B) total hip and total knee arthroplasties relative to the total U.S. population increased over time during the study period. The years in which the U.S. economy was in recession (2001 and 2008 to 2009) are highlighted. THA = total hip arthroplasty and TKA = total knee arthroplasty.
