        How we operate

        The Italian arthroplasty registry (Registro Italiano di ArtroProtesi – Riap) is a project funded by the Italian Ministry of Health – Directorate General of Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical Service, and coordinated by the Italian National Institute of Health. It started in 2006 with the aim to organise the national registry, a systematic data collection of all the joint replacements (hip, knee, shoulder and ankle) performed at national level.
