Reason/Issue The 2013 annual report of the National Joint Replacement Registry (NJRR) indicates that up to December 2012, the cumulative percent revision of the MSA Hip System has been calculated as 6.2 % at one year and approximately 11% at 2 years , both of which are significantly higher than that of other hip replacement prostheses. The most common reasons for revision of MSA to date have been loosening/lysis and peri-prosthetic fracture, but there have also been a few revisions due to prosthesis dislocation, pain and infection.

After consultation with the Therapeutic Goods Administration, a decision has been made by Global Orthopaedic Technology to cease supply of the MSA Hip Stem. This device has been removed from the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods.
