Description: This stock medical exhibit depicts tibial non-union with additional surgical repairs. The first images are an actual anterior x-ray of the right lower leg and an artist's interpretation of that x-ray, showing the previously placed hardware and non-union of the tibial fracture. Next, two images describe the surgical repair, including the incision, removal of previous hardware, placement of bone graft, and application of the external fixator. The final two image is an actual anterior x-ray of the right knee area showing the external fixator in place.
