Smith & Nephew (SNN) commenced voluntary market removal of 46mm diameter and smaller femoral heads and corresponding acetabular cup components for the BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing System, as revision rates associated with men requiring femoral head sizes 46mm or smaller and with all women patients exceeded current established benchmarks. The removed products accounted for ~1% of SNN's 2014 global hip implant revenue. (Smith & Nephew plc, 6/4/15)
