  • Compared with older adults, pediatric patients and young adults undergoing THA and TKA have very different diagnoses, including a high prevalence of tumor. Although the reported rate of revision surgery is currently similar to that for older patients, the number of reported procedures and the follow-up period remain limited. It is important for registries to continue to collect and analyze data relevant to this cohort and to coordinate these activities in order to better understand the safety and effectiveness of joint arthroplasty in the pediatric population.
