Left Knee Injuries with Arthroscopic Repairs - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit describes left knee injuries and arthroscopic repairs. The first image is an anterior/oblique view of the left knee showing the pre-operative condition, with hypertrophic pathologic medial plica, grade I chondromalacia of the medial and lateral patellar facets, a peripheral tear of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus, and a flap tear on the anterior horn of the medial meniscus. The second image is a superior view of the left tibial plateau which shows the meniscal tears more clearly. The remaining images describe multiple steps of the arthroscopic surgery, including the partial medial and lateral meniscectomies and limited medial synovectomy.
