From The Netherlands: Review IDs Trends in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Treatments in Children

Lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET) and anterolateral ligament reconstruction (ALLR) techniques for the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament in skeletally immature patients show promising results, according to a review published online March 6 in the Journal of Experimental Orthopaedics.

Martijn Dietvorst, M.D., Ph.D., from Maxima Medical Centre in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and colleagues conducted a scoping review to provide an overview of all current anterolateral augmentation procedures in skeletally immature patients and to examine surgical techniques and clinical and biomechanical outcomes.
