Initiatives -
The overall aims of the 'EUROHIP' cohort study are threefold: 1. to describe the amount of variation in disease severity at the time of primary total hip replacement in Europe; 2. to look for determinants of any variation; 3. to examine the effects of variations and their determinants on short-term (one year) patient centred outcomes *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.*
