This medical exhibit depicts a comminuted left patellar fracture with subsequent surgical fixation using three separate graphics. The first illustration pictures the post-accident appearance of the injury, showing the fractured patella, or kneecap, completely separated and broken into fragments. Labels point to the tendon of the rectus femoris muscle, comminuted patellar fracture, femur, patellar ligament, tibia and fibula. The next two images display the following surgical steps: 1. An incision made over the center of the patella, exposing the comminuted fracture; and 2. Reduction of the patella with reattachment of the patellar ligament using sutures.
