Abstract: Ligament injuries of the knee in the young athlete seem to be more frequent than suggested in the early literature. The diagnostic and treatment algorithm should
always take the presence of the growth plate into account. Most injuries can be treated conservatively but the risks of residual instability should always be balanced
against the risks of the operative treatment, especially when dealing with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the immature athlete.
