Corin Hips Awarded 5A* ODEP Rating

By Julie A. Vetalice

Corin was awarded a 5A* ODEP rating from the Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel for its MiniHip™ bone conserving hip, MetaFix™  collarless cementless total hip and the Trinity™ advanced bearing acetabular system.

In 2013, ODEP rated these systems at 3A, indicating >97% survivorship at three years.

ODEP independently assesses whether orthopaedic implants have reached certain benchmarks in accordance with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for survivorship of total hip replacements. A 5A* rating represents very strong clinical evidence and is the highest rating achievable at five years through ODEP.

Details on the new 5A* rated products are as follows:

  • MiniHip bone conserving hip replacement has demonstrated the ability to conserve bone and soft tissue, restore biomechanics and promote physiological loading.
  • MetaFix collarless is a fully coated hydroxyapatite stem, founded on 20 years of experience in cementless technology.
  • Trinity advanced bearing acetabular system offers a range of bearing solutions in a versatile system, featuring Biomimetic Cementless fixation technology.


These ratings add to those Corin has already achieved for its TriFit TS™ cementless tapered femoral stem (3A ODEP rating) and the TaperFit™ cemented total hip replacement (10A ODEP rating).
