1. What cluster of tests has the highest level of sensitivity for detecting medial meniscus tear?
a. Joint line tenderness/Thessaly
c. Joint line tenderness/Pivot shift
d. McMurray/joint line tenderness
I cannot find any recent references to support that Thessaly’s has higher sensitivity than McMurray’s? Unless that is still based upon Karachalios original study from 2005?
Below are a couple links to some more recent articles that investigated this topic. The key takeaways for this question is to appreciate that these test should be associated with meniscus tears and clusters are best. This is information would only appear in the context of background info for a larger case type question.
