Select Answer to see Preferred Response
All of the following are true regarding grade III medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears of the knee EXCEPT:
Proximal ruptures have decreased residual valgus laxity following nonoperative treatment than distal ruptures
They result in greater than 10 mm of valgus opening
They can result in a Stener-type lesion
They require operative repair when there is a concomitant anterior cruciate ligament tear
Proximal ruptures have better healing potential with nonoperative treatment than distal ruptures
