The International Consortium of Orthopaedic Registries (ICOR)

 

Dr. Sedrakyan leads a coordinating center for the International Consortium of Orthopaedic Registries (ICOR), which facilitates international registry stakeholders’ collaboration and develops innovative methodological approaches for conducting robust analytic studies to fill the evidence gaps in orthopedics. The additional goal is to improve regulators’ understanding of the safety and effectiveness of orthopaedic devices. ICOR was established in 2011 as a worldwide research consortium, to advance the methodology and conduct of orthopaedic medical device studies in a network of international registries. The network aims to determine evidence gaps and questions, and to identify datasets and approaches, for conducting robust analytic studies to improve our understanding of orthopaedic device performance. Members of ICOR include data holders and researchers interested in advancing the infrastructure and methods for studying orthopaedic medical devices. There are more than 3,500,000 orthopaedic surgeries capturing all implantable devices on the market and over 8 multinational studies and over 30 papers are published or in-press up to date.
