Abstract

Objective: To determine the overall diagnostic accuracy of the McMurray and joint line tenderness (JLT) tests for the detection of meniscal lesions.Design: Secondary analysis of a prospective observational study.Setting: Orthopedics outpatient clinic, university hospital.Participants: Patients (N=56) with suspected nonacute meniscal lesions who underwent knee arthroscopy.Interventions: Not applicable.Main Outcome Measures: Diagnostic accuracy of the McMurray and JLT tests as determined by receiver operator characteristic analysis.Results: The McMurray test showed higher accuracy (area under the curve [AUC], .69; SE, .079) than the JLT test (AUC, .58; SE, .084).Conclusions: The McMurray test, although presenting a higher diagnostic accuracy than the JLT test, does not suffice as a standalone diagnostic procedure for chronic meniscal lesions. The test may still be valuable to guide the diagnosis in cases with highly suspected meniscal tears. (C) 2016 by the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine
