Abstract

Purpose: The aim of the study was to evaluate, in a group of adolescents, the onset of varus–valgus deviations in the sagittal plane after performing a trans-tibial trans-epiphyseal technique of ACL reconstruction with a follow-up of at least 2 years. Methods: Seventy-one patients aged 12–15 years old (Tanner scale 3 and 4) have undergone ACL reconstruction with STG using arthroscopy. All patients were evaluated clinically using the visual analogue scale (VAS), the Lysholm score and the Tegner activity score at the time of surgery. All patients were reevaluated after a follow-up period of at least 2 years (T1) using the VAS, the Lysholm score, the Tegner activity score and radiographic studies in order to compare the operated limb with the healthy control limb. Results: Valgus difference exceeding 2° in the knee axis between the operated limb and the healthy control limb was observed only in three patients (4.2 %: 95 % CI 0.88–11.86 %). The average difference was
