McMurray's maneuver is used to detect the presence of meniscal tears. To detect a medial meniscal injury, the patient is put in a supine position with the knee in maximum flexion. One hand of the examiner is placed on the posteromedial margin of the involved knee and the other hand supports the foot. The tibia is then externally rotated, and the knee is extended slowly. The test is positive if there is an audible or palpable click or popping sensation during extension of the involved knee.
