The International Olympic Committee organized a meeting of an international panel of physiotherapists and orthopedic surgeons who specialize in treating and researching pediatric anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries to develop a consensus statement on the prevention, diagnosis, and management of pediatric ACL injuries. The key sections cover injury prevention (e.g., 11+ for kids program, factors that impact injury prevention effectiveness); diagnosis, clinical tests, and imaging; treatment of ACL injuries (e.g., rehabilitation, surgical techniques); treatment decision modifiers; pediatric patient-reported outcomes; ethical considerations; and future research.
