EAR has developed a methodology to test the reproducibility of scientific
content and to measure the deviation from real-life figures.
Relevant deviations have above all been detected in publications authored by
implant developers, as well as in publications coming from the USA. For further
information please download the papers about the Quality of Datasets and the
Quality of Publications regarding the Outcome of Revision Rate after Arthroplasty
published at EFORT Congresses from our Publications section.
EAR represents EFORT at the EU Commission regarding outcome measurement, quality
monitoring, and the recast of CE-licensing procedures for medical devices.
