Caption: Recovering from orthopaedic surgery. A doctor examining a sequoia frame on a patient's lower leg. The frame is used to immobilise the bones in cases of severe compound fracture or following orthopaedic surgery (such as leg lengthening). The frame uses metal rods to hold the bones in place whilst natural repairs progress. The X-ray images in the background show the frame in place, the right-hand image also shows the bones of the patient's leg. This device is also called a circular plus fine wire frame, or an Ilizarov frame after its inventor.
