International Consortium of Orthopaedic Registries

Welcome to the International Consortium of Orthopaedic Registries.

ICOR is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-sponsored initiative that is quickly evolving into a public-private partnership, with over 30 registries participating worldwide. Our purpose is to facilitate and enhance inter-registry collaboration through the provision of a supportive infrastructure and the development of a distributed data network that uses innovative approaches to analyze the data.

This approach is well suited to meet our goals of working with all registries, whether they are well-established or in the development stages. We also aim to assist our participating organizations with a creation of a learning network. Most importantly registries maintain control of their own data and, when they collaborate, they can contribute data in a manner that is not resource intensive.

 We are currently working on three projects:

1. Development of worldwide implant (prosthesis) database

2. Comparison of various bearings used in stemmed hip replacement

3. Comparison of various fixed and mobile bearings used in knee replacement
