Evaluation and Assessment
19 Questions
19 Questions Pediatric ACL tears are significantly increasing and there is a fundamental change in approach away from non-operative care towards operative management. With the variety of operative techniques available, skeletal age/remaining growth dictate the ACL reconstruction best indicated for the specific patient. With operative treatment, hamstring graft is still the gold standard for skeletally immature ACL reconstruction. The course also discusses a brief overview of rehabilitation of the pediatric ACL to get the athlete back to playing sports around 12 months. However, the best treatment is prevention, which has been shown in multiple studies to be effective in decreasing the rate of ACL injuries in athletes.
