  1. Incidence of Achilles tendon rupture.

    Article - En anglais

    We determined the incidence of a total Achilles tendon rupture in the city of Oulu and changes over the 16-year period 1979-1994.

    During this time, 110 ruptures occurred.

    The incidence increased from 2 ruptures/105 inhabitants in 1979-1986 to 12 in 1987-1994, with a mean of 7. The peak annual incidence, 18, was recorded in 1994.

    The incidence was highest in the age group 30-39 years.

    Male dominance was 5.5 : 1, and 81% of the ruptures were related to sports, with 88% occurring in ball games.

    The mean age was significantly lower for the sports injuries.
