Physeal-sparing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with iliotibial band autograft in the skeletally immature knee Journal Article uri icon
  • Conventional adult anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction techniques are controversial in skeletally immature patients due to the risk of iatrogenic physeal damage and potential growth disturbance. The physeal-sparing, combined intra- and extra-articular anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using an autogenous iliotibial band was developed to mitigate this risk in prepubescent, skeletally immature patients, with excellent functional outcomes and a low revision rate. This article describes the surgical details of this reproducible reconstruction technique.
