The symptoms of a tibial plateau fracture are often nonspecific, which can make them difficult to diagnose. One diagnostic tip-off can be the mechanism of injury. Tibial plateau fractures typically involve high-energy forces, as in this case of a 35-year-old softball player who experienced knee trauma when he collided with a teammate. In older patients, though, low-energy falls are a common cause of these injuries.
