This research project deals with the influence of gender on the healing process using the examples of hip and knee prostheses. The questions are which variables (pre- but also post-operative, e.g. age, ASA score, etc.) have an influence on the total score as well as the subdimensions of PROMs (Patient-Reported Outcome Measures). Preliminary analyses have shown that male patients often have a better score for the same patient characteristics when compared to female patients. The data come from two hospitals in Germany.
