Registries in orthopaedic surgery were introduced in the late 1960s by the Mayo Clinic followed on a national level in Sweden in 1975, Finland in 1980 and Norway in 1987. Registries initially concentrated on knee and hip arthroplasties, which have been expanded to many other surgeries and favour epidemiological research and medical device surveillance.
