3. McMurray's Test and Joint Line Tenderness for Medial Meniscus Tear: Are They Accurate? (PubMed)

McMurray's Test and Joint Line Tenderness for Medial Meniscus Tear: Are They Accurate? Meniscus tears are the most common injury of the knee. The McMurray's test and Joint line tenderness for diagnosing meniscus tear have been widely tested, but results reported by different authors vary. The wide variations reported have an impact on clinical decision concerning whether to go for other diagnostic tests before going for diagnostic arthroscopy, which is considered as the gold standard.The (...) purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic value of Joint line tenderness and McMurray's test, as clinical signs, to diagnose underlying medial meniscus tears.This was a prospective observational study done in Tribhuwan University Teaching Hospital. Patients undergoing knee arthroscopy were included in the study period of one year (from February 2011 to January 2012). Each patient was clinically examined with McMurray's test and joint line tenderness. The findings were then matched

5. The Paradoxical McMurray Test for the Detection of Meniscal Tears: An Arthroscopic Study of Mechanisms, Types, and Accuracy. (PubMed)

The Paradoxical McMurray Test for the Detection of Meniscal Tears: An Arthroscopic Study of Mechanisms, Types, and Accuracy. Meniscal tears are very common. The so-called paradoxical McMurray test has been described and found to be positive for three different types of meniscal tears. However, to our knowledge, no study has evaluated the accuracy of this test. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of the paradoxical McMurray test compared with the conventional McMurray (...) test. We also sought to determine whether there are other types of meniscal tears that would show positive results on the paradoxical McMurray test.The authors evaluated 628 patients with meniscal tears (Group I) and 387 patients without meniscal tears (Group II), as confirmed by arthroscopy performed from June 2000 to May 2006. The results of both clinical examinations (the conventional and the paradoxical McMurray test) were recorded, and the paradoxical phenomenon as seen during arthroscopy

7. Medical Concepts: I Kneed You – The Thessaly Test for Meniscal Injury

is the “Thessaly Test” and has it been proven useful in the detection of meniscal injuries? Meniscal Injuries Meniscal injuries often occur following a twisting injury to the knee, usually with the foot planted on the floor. 1 Common symptoms include joint line tenderness, a clicking noise, knee locking, and recurrent delayed joint effusions (most commonly with associated cruciate and/or patellar subluxation or dislocation). Many tests exist to help diagnose meniscal injuries, including the McMurray test (...) , the Thessaly test, and joint line tenderness. 2–4 We will compare the evidence for these tests below. Figure 1. Lateral view of knee anatomy (left). 5 Superior view of the right tibia (right); note location of the menisci. 6 Commonly Used Tests for Detecting Meniscal Injury The McMurray Test There are 2 components to the McMurray test, examining both the medial and lateral meniscus.

. For example, the belief that pain during the ‘McMurrays’ special test stresses and strains the knee meniscus alone is not so ( ). The belief that pain on the ‘Spurlings’ special test or during the ‘upper limb tension’ special tests only indicates neural compression or tension is just not so ( ). Special tests simply do not isolate specific tissues or structures, therefore when pain is reproduced during these tests all they tell you is that pain is reproduced not what the source is. That’s even (...)

Analysis of the set of three tests (McMurray, PPJI, and Steinmann I) compared to arthroscopy showed 85% sensitivity for MMT and 70% sensitivity for LMT. MRI showed a greater specificity for the diagnosis of MMT and LMT; the values were 82% and 91%, respectively.The combination of the three tests shows better results compared to the isolated tests and thus can be associated to the MRI to make an effective diagnosis.
