Abstract
Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in skeletally immature patients presents distinct challenges from that in adult patients. Although there is a tremendous amount of scientific data on ACL reconstruction in adolescents with open growth plates, the best surgical technique continues to be debated. Recent studies have reported that the anterolateral ligament (ALL) is identified as a potentially important structure involved in rotational control of the knee, and its reconstruction has shown excellent results. We present a combined ACL and ALL reconstruction technique performed on a 12-year-old female with open physis who sustained an ACL tear after a non-contact twisting injury while playing Taekwondo.
