Caption: Broken neck. Image 2 of 2. X-ray of screws inserted to help mend fractured cervical vertebrae in the neck of a 55-year-old man. The image is taken from the side with the man facing left. The jawbone is at upper left. The injury was sustained in a skiing accident. This sort of neck injury may cause paralysis, but did not in this case. Screws or pins are often inserted into broken or fractured bones to stabilize them while the bone heals. For an image of the broken neck before treatment see M330/1077.
