Lever test yielded high sensitivity, specificity in diagnosis of ACL injury

June 17, 2017

Read the Perspective from Theodore B. Shybut, MD

Results of this level 2 study showed the lever test resulted in high sensitivity, specificity and overall accuracy in the detection of ACL tears.

"The lever test had a similar accuracy to more established ACL instability tests, is well-tolerated by injured patients, and is easy to learn,” Patrick C. McCulloch, MD, told Healio.com/Orthopedics. “As a dichotomous test that does not require grading (either the heel lifts off or it does not), it may be especially useful for those who do not perform ACL examinations routinely.”
