The Swedish Arthroplasty Register (SAR) is a National Quality Register. It is a merger of the two oldest national arthroplasty registers, the Swedish Knee Arthroplasty Register and the Swedish Hip Arthroplasty Register, including knee replacements since 1975, hip replacements since 1979, hemiarthroplasties since 2005, and knee osteotomies since 2013. Reoperations, revisions and other procedures, related to the knee or hip are registered, as well as patient-reported outcome(s). The register includes information on demography, prophylaxis, surgical technique, and type of implant on individual level. All units performing hip and/or knee replacements in Sweden report to the register and the completeness is 98%.
