Caption: Broken arm. X-ray of a compound fracture of the radius and ulna in the forearm. The radius is the upper of the two arm bones, with the bones of the hand at right. Both the radius and ulna have snapped just below their heads, near the wrist. The fracture has left the bones with sharp broken ends which may pierce the skin. This is known as a compound fracture. Most fractures are caused by sudden injury that exerts more force on the bones than they can withstand. X-rays can confirm the diagnosis. This fracture may be repaired by surgery to realign and immobilise the bones.
