At TRIA (Bloomington), we balance measuring patient outcomes, which can be considered small continuous improvements, with innovative research studies, which are those grand advancements in orthopaedic care. These research studies explore the latest in medical devices, instruments, implants, methods and procedures.

Two-year follow-up after ACL reconstruction in adolescent female athletes
The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the four major ligaments that make up your knee. A tear of the ACL may require reconstruction using another tendon or ligament to substitute the torn ligament. Tears of the ACL are increasing in incidence especially in the younger, active population as participation in more intense training and sports are beginning at an earlier age. As the demographic changes in youth sports and more females become involved, it is pertinent to evaluate if this population can be categorized with the general population or if there are differences between female outcomes and their male counterparts.
Evaluate the long-term outcomes of female athletes who have undergone an ACL reconstruction to determine the rate of return to sport and the re-rupture rate of the ACL graft.
