Retained Hardware with Surgical Removal - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit begins with a skeletal view of the left foot illustrating the pre-operative condition revealing the previously placed hardware will be shown in place and most of the original fractures will be successfully healed. The screw over the base of the first metatarsal is shown broken. Next images illustrate the key steps of this surgical procedure. These images will show the open exposure of the fracture sites, the removal of the broken hardware from the first metatarsal and the additional removal of the hardware from the fourth metatarsal. Finally, one additional skeletal view illustrates the post-operative condition showing the fixation screws removed from the first and fourth metatarsals.
