Copeland Test: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: None written. Excerpt from the entry in Achilles Tendon Tear:
With the patient prone, a sphygmomanometer cuff is placed around the middle of the calf and inflated to 100 mm Hg, with the ankle placed in passive plantar flexion by the examiner. The examiner then dorsiflexes the ankle. If the Achilles tendon is intact, dorsiflexion produces a rise in pressure of between 35 and 60 mm Hg. If the tendon is torn, little or no pressure rise is seen.
