|Title:||The false positive Lachman test.||Authors:||Kumar, V.P.
|Issue Date:||Dec-1993||Citation:||Kumar, V.P., Satku, K. (1993-12). The false positive Lachman test.. Singapore Medical Journal 34 (6) : 551-552. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Five patients with isolated rupture of the posterior cruciate injury following road traffic accidents were noted to demonstrate a "positive Lachman test". Stress radiographs while performing the Lachman manoeuvre confirmed that all 5 patients had only a posterior cruciate injury. Attention is drawn to the "false positive Lachman test" that indicates a posterior cruciate injury. The presence of a sag sign also establishes a diagnosis of posterior cruciate rupture and a positive Lachman test in this situation must be interpreted with caution.||Source Title:||Singapore Medical Journal||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/133827||ISSN:||00375675|
