We describe a novel physeal sparing arthroscopic technique for anatomic suture refixation of tibial eminence fractures and assess the mid-term results of six consecutive patients (McKeever type II n = 2, III n = 3 and IV n = 1). The mean follow-up was 5 ± 2 years. Five of six patients were painfree. All patients returned to their preinjury sport level. Mean(More)
The primary purpose of our study was to analyse the long-term outcome of patients treated for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears by anatomical single-bundle ACL reconstruction with patellar tendon autograft. The secondary purpose was to identify predictive factors for good outcome and occurrence of osteoarthritis. Sixty-three patients (m:f = 54:9; mean(More)
BACKGROUND One major concern in the treatment of ACL lesions in children and adolescents with open physes is the risk of iatrogenic damage to the physes and a possibly resulting growth disturbance. PURPOSE The primary purpose of this article is to describe our technique of a transphyseal ACL reconstruction using quadriceps tendon-bone autograft in(More)
