Clinical diagnosis of an anterior cruciate ligament rupture: a meta-analysis

Clinical diagnosis of an anterior cruciate ligament rupture: a meta-analysis

CRD summary This review assessed the diagnostic performance of physical tests for anterior cruciate ligament rupture. The lack of details of the included studies and the variation between them mean that the results should be treated with caution. The authors’ recommendation of the Lachman test appears reasonable, but no data were presented to support its use in combination with the pivot test.
