Right Lower Leg Fractures with Surgical Fixation
Right Lower Leg Fractures with Surgical Fixation

This stock medical illustration begins with one skeletal view of the right lower leg illustrating the pre-operative condition. This image clearly reveals the comminuted, angulated and displaced fracture of the proximal tibia, the additional comminuted fracture of the mid-shaft of the tibia and the severely angulated fracture of both the proximal and mid-shaft portion of the fibula. Next, two images are included demonstrating the fixation of the tibia. These images show the incision created exposing the tibial fracture and the insertion of a plate and multiple screws. Finally, one additional skeletal view is included illustrating the post-operative condition. This image shows the tibia realigned with a 13 hole plate and 10 screws in place.
