Abstract: An avulsion of the anterior cruciate of an 11 year old girl was internally fixed with a transepiphysial screw. Two years later, anterior epiphysiodesis was evident, causing hyperextension of the knee. To avoid this complication, we recommend early removal of transepiphysial metalwork in children. Arthroscopical intrafocal fixation is proposed as a safe alternative.
