Maintenance, further development and continuous updating of the endoprosthesis registry as well as coordination of the data evaluation from the registries


The DVSE joint replacement registry collects basic data and scientific data on the implantation of shoulder and elbow endoprostheses from the participating centers. In principle, all members of the DVSE are entitled to participate. The registry makes an important contribution to provide patient safety, quality control, ensuring the quality of results and meeting current and future legal requirements.

The entry into the SEPR is integrated into the structured training and education concept of the DVSE. The participation, frequency and quality of the entry are prerequisites for achieving specific levels and certificates.

In addition to scientific questions, the evaluation of the data provides important information on the quality of care in the DACH region and allows comparison with other national registries.

Current status

The new revised version of the software in the SPR has been online since January 2022. This was preceded by a multi-stage process of revision and adaptation to current requirements.

Further Improvement
All participants are requested and cordially invited to enter as much and as frequently as possible data into the register. The goal is a very high number of documentations of performed endoprosthesis implantations at the shoulder and at the elbow in the DACH region. The quality of the entered data is of particular importance.



Since 2015, the SEPR has been funded exclusively by the DVSE e.V.
