Reverse Pivot Shift Test
- Reverse Pivot Shift Test
- Evaluate the integrity of the Posterolateral Corner
- The patient is in the prone position
- The knee is placed in 70° of flexion and the foot is rotated externally
- This leads to posterior subluxation of the lateral compartment of the PLC-injured knee
- The knee is then slowly extended to about 20-30° of flexion
- The force vector of the Iliotibial Band changes and the tibia is pulled forward, reducing the subluxation.
- Audible "clank" heard at 30-degrees while moving into extension
