Test” (McMurray test)

Positioning.

The subject lies supine with the knee fully flexed (heel to the buttock). The examiner holds a palpating finger in the joint line at the side to be tested. The other hand grasps the heel and rotates the leg fully (externally to test the medial meniscus, internally for the lateral meniscus).

Procedure.

The examiner now slowly extends the knee, while rotation is maintained. As extension proceeds, a click may be felt, usually as the leg approaches the neutral position.
