PURPOSE To compare the incidence of bacterial infection in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with autograft versus allograft. METHODS We completed a retrospective medical record review of ACL reconstructions performed at our institutions between 2001 and 2005. These included 170 autograft, 628 allograft, and 3 combined autograft/allograft reconstructions. Data collection included patient demographics, comorbidities, preoperative antibiotics, fixation type, and the occurrence of… CONTINUE READING
