KKU Meniscus Test Validity: Better!
The combination of the McMurray?s and KKU tests had diagnostic sensitivity of 90% and positive result of both tests suggested torn meniscus with the probability of 97%.
Meaning, if the KKU & McMurray?s are both…
-ve –> menical tear very very unlikely
+ve –> meniscal tear most likely present
