Caption: Fractured femur. Artwork based on an X-ray of a fracture at the neck of the femur. The femur (thigh bone) has a thin neck connected to the ball (upper left) which forms the joint with the pelvis (top left corner). The fracture is seen as a dark line running down the bone from upper right. The injury is very common in those suffering from a bone wasting condition such as osteoporosis. In these cases, the fracture can be caused by a simple fall. This is a impacted fracture, in which the two ends of the bone have not moved apart. This type of fracture usually heals without surgery, but the patient must be rested and supervised.
