ACL avulsion with fibula fractures


Avulsions of the tibial eminence are most frequently seen in high energy trauma such as a motor vehicle accidents, and in children where bone is pliable and gives way before the ACL tears. In this case, a young man in a motor vehicle collision sets up a reasonable scenario for this injury, which is actually quite well evaluated on the plain film images in this case.
