Management of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in skeletally immature patients (in Tanner stages 2 and 3) is controversial. Conventional reconstruction used in adults can cause iatrogenic growth disturbance due to physeal damage, and studies that report long-term results using a specific technique are scarce. The aim of this study is to evaluate in a large series the mid- and long-term results of a partial transphyseal technique and define the safe percentage of lesions of the femoral growth plate.
