QCD sum-rule studies have been useful to understand and get an insight on the structure of exotic states, such as tetraquark systems. Moreover, the majority of these studies are performed only at leading-order (LO) within the light tetraquarks systems picture, overlooking the effects of higher order corrections, thus motivating our analysis. Our study [1] focused on the effects of next-to-leading order (NLO) contributions to the mass estimates of the lightest tetraquark state ($J^{PC} = 0^{++}$), the so-called $\sigma$ or $f_{0}(500)$[2], using ratios of QCD Laplace sum-rules. A variety of different models were used, which included multiple resonances and width effects, resulting in a final mass prediction of $0.52\,\text{GeV}< m_{\sigma}< 0.77\,\text{GeV}$. Even though the ratios of sum-rules demonstrated some insesitivity under superficially large NLO contributions, they added the beneficial feature of canceling the dependence on the anomalous dimension. Our findings were in good agreement with patterns found in Chiral Lagrangian studies regarding the four-quark structure of the $\sigma$ state, including the relative coupling strengths within the multiple resonance analysis.
