Brief Answer:
Improper alignment.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached X-ray. The alignment of the knee joint is not maintained and lateral tibial plateau is not properly reduced.
This needs a revision knee surgery or a total knee replacement.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

The alignment is not proper.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
I have seen the X-rays of 2nd XXXXXXX also. All the X-rays show that the alignment is not proper. The plates have not been fixed properly. The reduction is not proper.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
