Caption: Fractured foot. Coloured X-ray of a spiral fracture (bottom, red) of the third bone (metatarsal) of the fifth toe. A spiral fracture is a diagonal break across a bone and is caused by a twisting movement about the long axis of the bone, for example during a fall when skiing or ice- skating. This type of fracture is unstable and tends to slip even if the bone is splinted. The tips of the broken bone can damage blood vessels, nerves and skin. The patient also has a bunion (top, red) on their first metatarsal. This is the swelling of the toe's joint caused by wearing ill- fitting shoes.
