New Zealand guidelines for the diagnosis and management of soft tissue knee injuries: internal derangements
|Published by:||New Zealand Guidelines Group|
These guidelines provide an evidence-based summary of the diagnostic management and treatment options available for internal derangements of the knee.
The diagnosis of MCL injuries is based on a positive valgus stress test performed in extension and 30° of flexion.
The presence of tenderness along the course of the MCL is highly suggestive of MCL injuries.
