Study results show incidence of ACL repair has increased significantly

December 23, 2014

According to recent study data, the number of ACL reconstructions has risen significantly between 1994 and 2006, particularly in women younger than 20 years of age and older than 40 years of age.

Researchers culled ICD-9 codes relating to ACL tear and reconstruction from two databases between 1994 and 2004. ACL reconstruction incidence was determined via data from the U.S. Census. Results were stratified by patient age, sex, facility and any concomitant diagnoses/procedures.
