Description: This medical exhibit begins with two images of the left lower leg, one external view and one internal skeletal view, offering an overall orientation to the post-accident condition in this case. The external view shows the dramatic open wound below the knee. The skeletal view reveals the comminuted fracture of the proximal tibial shaft, as well as the associated fracture of the fibula. The key steps of the initial repair procedure are illustrated including the debridement of the skin and soft tissue, the debridement of the fracture with removal of fragmented bone and the placement of the intramedullary rod.
