Table 3 Correlation between examiner-induced motion during the reduction event of the pivot shift test and the anterior translation of the lateral knee compartment in the high grade laxity specimen and the low grade laxity specimen

From: Influence of knee position and examiner-induced motion on the kinematics of the pivot shift

DOF Pivot shift Pearson coefficient: Anterior translation of lateral knee compartment

Varus/Valgus rotation (+ = varus, − = valgus) High grade laxity −0.017
Low grade laxity 0.835*
Anterior/Posterior translation (+ = anterior, − = posterior) High grade laxity −0.126
Low grade laxity −0.397*
Distal/Proximal translation (+ = distal, − = proximal) High grade laxity −0.445*
Low grade laxity −0.363*
Medial/Lateral translation (+ = medial, − = lateral) High grade laxity −0.227*
Low grade laxity −0.307*
