The AAOS Board of Directors, at its meeting in June, adopted a risk stratification algorithm for management of patients with dual modular tapered total hip arthroplasty (THA), as well as several new information statements on issues concerned with patient safety. In addition, position statements on comparative effectiveness research, the need for daily physical activity, and power lawnmower safety were revised. On the recommendation of the Health Care Systems Committee and the Council on Advocacy, it also voted to sunset the position statement on Hip Fracture in Seniors: A Call for Health System Reform.
