Left Lower Leg Fractures with Surgical Fixation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts left lower leg fractures with surgical fixation. The first image shows the post-accident condition, with a severely comminuted fracture of the tibial plateau and fracture of the proximal fibula. Next, one image describes the surgical fixation, with placement of two plates and multiple screws to fix the fractured tibia. The third image shows the post-operative condition, with plates and screws in place. A final image shows the eventual condition, in which the bone has settled and compressed and the plate is partially in the joint space.
