Ankle Fracture Fixation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit illustrates the procedure for ankle fracture fixation. The first pair of images portray the extent of the injury from anterior and medial views. Next, the a longitudinal incision is shown on the medial aspect of the ankle. The third image shows the dissection and debridement of the wound. Then, the reduction and fixation of the malleolar fracture with a five-hole plate and screws is depicted. Finally, the post-operative condition is clearly communicated from the anterior view as the fixation screws are ghosted inside the tibia and bone fragments.
