Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Our systematic review summarizes the evidence about the accuracy of physical diagnostic tests for assessing meniscal lesions of the knee. SEARCH STRATEGY: We performed a literature search of MEDLINE (1966­1999) and EMBASE (1988­ 1999) with additional reference tracking. SELECTION CRITERIA: Articles written in English, French, German, or Dutch that addressed the accuracy of at least one physical diagnostic test for meniscus injury with arthrotomy, arthroscopy, or magnetic resonance imaging as the gold standard were included. DATA COLLECTION and ANALYSIS: Two reviewers independently selected studies, assessed the methodologic quality, and abstracted data using a standardized protocol.
