This stock medical exhibit features four large views of the right knee comparing the following specific conditions:
1. An anterior skeletal view illustrating the normal anatomy of the knee revealing the proper structure and alignment of the knee joint.
2. An initial post-accident condition with a depressed fracture of the lateral tibial plateau and resulting valgus alignment of the joint.
3. An intra-operative view during a total knee replacement. This image shows the knee joint exposed through a large open surgical incision as the defective tibial plateau is being cut away. The widespread degenerative changes are revealed, including medial and lateral meniscal tears.
