Left Leg Quadriplasty and Achilles Tendon Lengthening
Left Leg Quadriplasty and Achilles Tendon Lengthening

This stock medical exhibit depicts a left leg quadriplasty and achilles tendon lengthening in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows the beginning of the procedure, in which a large incision is created in the lateral left thigh to expose the musculature. Conditions and surgeries take place bilaterally. The second illustration shows the freeing of the soft tissues of the leg from the underlying bone to allow the leg to move more freely. The third illustration shows several percutaneous incisions made over the Achilles tendon region in the back of the ankle. The fourth illustration shows a detail of the center and lateral cuts made to lengthen the Achilles tendon.
