Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are among the most commonly treated sports-related injuries in the pediatric population. Although the current evidence indicates excellent prognosis with surgical management of these injuries, complications do occur before, during, and after surgery. Recognition of potential complications, an understanding of risk factors for them, and preparation for their management are of paramount importance to the orthopedic surgeon treating ACL injuries in children and adolescents.
