Thompson Test: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: None written. Excerpt from the entry in Achilles Tendon Tear:
Also called the "Calf Squeeze test". The patient lies supine and the examiner squeezed the suspected calf inspecting for the presence or absence of plantarflexion. A positive test reveals the absence of plantar flexion and is highly suggestive of an Achilles tendon rupture.
