Left Leg Fracture with Surgical Fixation
Left Leg Fracture with Surgical Fixation

This stock medical exhibit portrays a left leg fracture with surgical fixation in a series of illustrations. The first illustration is an illustrative interpretation of an x-ray showing the pre-operative condition, which is a mildly displaced intertrochanteric fracture of the left proximal femur. The second illustration depicts the surgical fixation, in which the intertrochanteric fracture is exposed through a large incision on the left leg. The fracture is reduced and secured with fixation hardware. The third illustration shows the post-operative condition, in which a 10 mm lag screw, a 135 degree 4-hole side plate and multiple 4.5 mm bicortical screws have been placed in the left femur.
