McMurray test

A clinical manoeuvre used to identify a torn meniscus.

Method
The patient lies on his or her back with the knee completely flexed. The examiner rotates the foot fully outward while slowly extending the knee: a painful click in outward rotation indicates a torn medial meniscus; a painful click in inward rotation indicates a torn lateral meniscus.
