Two popular physeal-sparing procedures used in the management of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in skeletally immature patients are the iliotibial band (ITB) ACL reconstruction (ACLR) and the all-epiphyseal (AE) ACLR. Although there has been concern for overconstraint of the lateral compartment of the knee with the ITB ACLR technique, rotational stability, as provided by the anterolateral ligament (ALL) and ACL, has not been assessed in the setting of pediatric ACLR techniques. Our hypothesis is that the ITB ACLR and AE ACLR with ALL reconstruction (ALLR) will best replicate the biomechanical profile of the intact ACL that is lost with transection of the ACL and ALL.
