NJR Annual Reports analyse the data submitted to the NJR, and highlight the aims and achievements of the National Joint Registry, its Steering Committee and its sub-committees and are released in September each year.
The key analyses of the NJR's 13th, and latest, Annual Report – covering 2015/16 data – were presented as part of the official programme at the British Orthopaedic Association Annual Congress in Belfast, September 2016.

Data from over 2 million procedures are now registered on the NJR with continued growth expected now that elbow and shoulder replacement data collection is more comprehensive (since April 2012) and both Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man have joined the NJR (from February 2013 and July 2015 respectively).
2016 report highlights: The patient has an important effect on how long a hip replacement will last, national report finds
The National Joint Registry’s (NJR) 13th Annual Report finds that revision (‘re-do’ surgery) estimates following primary total hip replacement remain low. The impressive results underpin the enormous success and reliability of this operation.
However, the report also highlights that patient factors have a significant bearing on how long the implant will last, with younger patients having an increased risk of revision than their older counterparts. Revision estimates are much higher in patients under-55 compared to patients over-75 years of age which could be attributed to patient activity.
