Egyptian Community Arthroplasty Register

  • This community Arthroplasty Register is an individual initiative to prospectively document arthroplasty procedures performed from 2007 to date in Cairo
  • The register started by one surgeon (Mahmoud A Hafez) and lately was joined by more than 10  surgeons & more than 10  hospitals. The majority of patients were E from 28 different nationalities. The registry proforma designed in 3 pages; pre-, intra- and post-operative and available in printed, electronic Below are sections of THA & TKA operative sheet that can be accessed on this website ( In addition, the original implant stickers of all components including cement & screws were attached to the back of the registry sheets. Establishing such a register in this region is very difficult due to lack of funding, low interest in  non-clinical research.
  • This register is currently self funded but hopefully will be adopted by the ministry of health in future
  • Although it is costly now, the registration of more surgeons and hospitals in future will make it more cost effective. Acknowledgements
