From: A modified anterior drawer test for anterior cruciate ligament ruptures

Item Positive Negative p (Fisher test)
MADT* 12 10 N/A
ADT 3 19 0.0043
LT 6 16 0.0469
PST 5 17 0.0248
  1. * The sensitivity of the MADT was significantly better than that of the anterior drawer test (p < 0.004), Lachman test (p=0.047) and pivot shift test (p=0.025) in detecting partial ruptures of the ACL. MADT: modified anterior drawer test
