Metadata[+] Show full item record
The Ottawa Knee Rules can guide the use of radiography in adults who present with isolated knee pain. However, information on use of these rules in the pediatric population is limited (strength of recommendation [SOR ]: A, based on systematic review of high-quality studies and a validated clinical decision rule). Specific physical examination maneuvers (such as the Lachman and McMurray tests) may be helpful when assessing for meniscal or ligamentous injury (SOR : C, based on studies of intermediate outcomes).
