(group C) were managed by the all-inside technique using the Mitek RapidLoc soft tissue anchor (Mitek Surgical Products, Westwood, MA, USA). Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction was performed in 29 patients (51%). The criteria for clinical success included absence of joint line tenderness, locking, swelling, and a negative McMurray test. The minimum follow-up was one year for all groups. The mean follow-up was 23 months for group A, 22 months for group B, and 22 months for group C. All

443. A clinical composite score accurately detects meniscal pathology. (Abstract)

A clinical composite score accurately detects meniscal pathology. Five common tests were used to diagnose meniscal tears when used as a composite score. We evaluated how effectively the composite examination, when performed in the presence of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury or degenerative joint disease (DJD), determined the presence of meniscal tears.Data were collected prospectively on all patients at our clinic with a primary knee complaint. Independent variables included (...) the presence or absence of the following: (1) a history of "catching" or "locking" as reported by the patient, (2) pain with forced hyperextension, (3) pain with maximum flexion, (4) pain or an audible click with McMurray's maneuver, and (5) joint line tenderness to palpation. Comprehensive patient demographic data were collected including ligamentous examinations and other intra-articular pathologies found at arthroscopy. Composite examination findings were correlated with the presence or absence

and located in the red/red or red/white zone. Criteria for clinical success included absence of joint-line tenderness, locking, swelling, and a negative McMurray test. Clinical evaluation also included the Tegner and Lysholm knee scores, and KT-1000 arthrometry. In addition, all patients were evaluated preoperatively with magnetic resonance imaging.The average follow-up was 18 months (range, 14 to 28 months). Six of 61 repaired menisci (9.8%) were considered failures according to our criteria. Therefore

(MRI), and arthroscopic treatment.Common symptoms were a catching sensation in 10 patients (71.4%), pain at squatting in 9 patients (64.3%), and sense of giving way and effusion, each in 7 patients (50%). Five patients (35.7%) had lateral joint-line tenderness. McMurray's test was positive in 6 (42.9%) and tears were diagnosed by MRI in 13 (92.8%) patients. Arthroscopic examination showed multiple longitudinal tears in the avascular white zone of the meniscus in 7 patients (50%).These data show (...) that the McMurray test and joint-line tenderness had a low diagnostic value in diagnosing anterior horn tears of the lateral meniscus. MRI, however, had a high diagnostic value. Common arthroscopic findings included multiple longitudinal tears within the white zone of the anterior horn.Level IV.

We determined clinical criteria for success in meniscal status as (1) not positive for 4 clinical objective parameters--joint line pain and tenderness, locking or catching, recurrent effusions, and McMurray test; and (2) complete healing of all-inside sutured meniscus during second-look arthroscopy.Among 39 knees assessed by second-look arthroscopy, 32 (82.1%) knees showed complete healing and 6 (15.4%) showed incomplete healing without any positive findings

tears than is the drawer sign. For meniscal tears, joint line tenderness is sensitive (75%) but not specific (27%), while the McMurray test is specific (97%) but not sensitive (52%). Compared with the physical examination, MRI is more sensitive for ligamentous and meniscal damage but less specific.

. Try to detect any palpable or visible reduction between the femur and the tibia. PCL Posterior drawer test : Perform the same examination as the anterior drawer test but pushing backwards in relation to the tibia instead of pulling forwards. Compare the degree of movement with the other side. Posterior sag test : Flex both knees to 90°. Look at the position of the tibia in relation to the femur. If there is rupture of the PCL, the position will be relatively posterior. Other tests McMurray's test (...) : compare with the other side. Examine for an effusion This is unnecessary if swelling is gross. The massage (bulge) test : with the knee in extension, use the palm of your hand to massage any fluid in the anteromedial compartment of the knee into the suprapatellar pouch. Next, stroke the lateral side of the joint and the lateral side of the suprapatellar pouch. This will push any fluid present back into the anteromedial compartment. Look for a fluid impulse.

that a history of swelling and a ballottable effusion were negative predictors. A positive McMurray test was the only positive predictor of unstable meniscal tear. "Mechanical" symptoms were not reliable predictors in this prospective study. The model was 69% accurate for all patients and 76% for those with advanced medial compartment osteoarthritis defined by a joint space height of 2 mm or less.This study underscored the difficulty in using clinical variables to predict unstable medial meniscal tears

Patients with symptoms consistent with meniscal repair failure underwent magnetic resonance arthrography and repeat arthroscopy.Twenty patients with 21 meniscal tears were excluded, resulting in 54 meniscal tears in 46 patients. At a mean follow-up of 34.8 months, the clinical success rate for meniscal repair was 90.7% (49/54), with 5 failures requiring meniscectomy.

Localised pigmented villonodular synovitis: an uncommon cause of knee pain mimicking a meniscal tear A previously well 30 year old man presented with a short history of intra-articular mechanical locking, swelling, and anteromedial joint line pain.

Arthroscopy revealed a 3.6 x 2.6 x 1.5 cm firm pedicular localised pigmented villonodular synovitis originating from the insertion of the anterior horn of the medial meniscus. Owing

associated ACL deficiency. There were 144 meniscal lesions in 130 of the 160 knees which were examined. The sensitivity of the tests was lower than the specificity. Conventional tests such as McMurray and Apley tests showed a low accuracy rate of 45% and 28% respectively. The diagnostic value of the axially loaded pivot shift test was significantly higher, indicating that this remains a useful diagnostic aid. (...) Efficacy of the axially loaded pivot shift test for the diagnosis of a meniscal tear Although magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has improved the diagnostic accuracy of meniscal pathology, the authors believe that physical examination remains essential to the evaluation of knee pathology. In this study, the diagnostic accuracy of five clinical tests for meniscal pathology was prospectively evaluated in 160 patients, who thereafter underwent arthroscopy. 69% (109 knees) of the knees tested had

Diagnostic accuracy of a new clinical test (the Thessaly test) for early detection of meniscal tears. Clinical tests used for the detection of meniscal tears in the knee do not present acceptable diagnostic sensitivity and specificity values.

458. A new weight-bearing meniscal test and a comparison with McMurray's test and joint line tenderness. (Abstract)

A new weight-bearing meniscal test and a comparison with McMurray's test and joint line tenderness. The purpose of this study was to describe a new weight-bearing McMurray's test (Ege's test) and to compare its diagnostic value with McMurray's test and joint line tenderness (JLT). We also aimed to determine if associated lesions had any effect on the diagnostic values of the 3 tests.Prospective controlled trial, clinical study.The study group consisted of 150 consecutive patients who had had (...) , sensitivity, and specificity, respectively). Higher positive predictive values were obtained with McMurray's and Ege's tests than with JLT, but similar negative predictive values were achieved in all. A torn anterior cruciate ligament did not decrease the diagnostic values of the 3 tests, whereas the number of associated lesions in the knee negatively affected the diagnostic capabilities of the tests.Accuracies of traditional clinical meniscus tests may be improved by including Ege's test in the clinical
