Course Description:

Pediatric ACL reconstruction is still a challenge for the orthopaedic surgeon. Many different surgical techniques have been developed with to goal of reducing physeal damage and re-rupture rates. In this case-based IC, a panel of European and US authors describe their indications for ACL reconstruction in the pediatric population and present a re-live surgery of their favorite surgical technique. The focus will be on the following topics:             

  • Indications
  • ACL repair
  • All epiphyseal ACL reconstruction
  • Partial transphyseal (tibia) and over the top (femur) ACL reconstruction
  • Kocker/Micheli technique
  • All-epiphyseal over the top Marcacci/Zaffagnini technique
  • Hybrid technique: All epiphyseal (tibia) and over the top (femur) ACL reconstruction
  • Adult type reconstruction
  • Return to sport and risk of re-injury

 

Course Objectives

  • Learn the indications for ACL repair and reconstruction in the pediatric population
  • Learn different techniques to preserve growth plates or minimize physis damage
  • Learn the importance of return to sports and risk of re-injury in such a delicate population.
