Depressed Lateral Tibial Plateau Fracture with Surgical Fixation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit begins with one large anterior skeletal view of the right knee illustrating the post-accident condition. This image clearly reveals a comminuted and depressed fracture of the lateral tibial plateau. This image is based specifically on actual post-accident x-rays.
Also included are multiple steps of the internal surgical fixation of the fracture. These steps include an the creation of an incision into the knee, initial stabilization with the use of k-wires and and insertion of a plate and multiple screws.
Finally, one additional skeletal view is included illustrating the post-operative condition. This image clearly reveals the 6-hole locking plate, multiple screws and bone grafts in place.
