A 30-year-old man is the front seat passenger in a motor vehicle accident. He presents with deformity in his knee seen in Figures A and B. Radiographs are seen in Figures C and D. Examination reveals weak foot pulses. After unsuccessful attempts at closed reduction, it is noted that the pulses are no longer palpable and the foot is cool. What is the next step in treatment?
Open reduction through an anteromedial approach, spanning external fixation. If pulses do not return, perform popliteal artery exploration.
Closed reduction in the operating room using a femoral distractor. If pulses do not return, perform on-table angiogram.
Manual in-line skeletal traction using a calcaneal pin in the emergency room, provisional long-leg splinting. If pulses do not return, perform computed tomography angiography in the radiology suite.
Manual in-line skeletal traction using a proximal tibial pin in the emergency room, provisional long-leg splinting. If pulses do not return, perform standard angiography in the angiography suite.
Open reduction through a posterior approach, spanning external fixation. If pulses do not return, perform popliteal artery exploration.

HPI - Two years back patient had a traumatic injury to his Rt knee.at that time no finding was picked and he was given compressive bandage.
Gradually valgus deformity occurred and now he walks with a limp.
