This stock medical exhibit depicts fractures of the right femur and patella with surgical fixation.

Next, multiple steps of the surgical fixation procedure are illustrated, including debridement of the open wound, reduction of the femur fracture and placement of an intramedullary nail, and repair of the patellar fractures with screws. The final image is an anterior view of the upper leg and knee showing all fixation hardware in place.
