Caption: Pinned broken leg, coloured X-ray. The patient's tibia (shin bone) has been surgically immobilised by inserting a long pin and attaching it to the bone. This is known as internal fixation. It is important a bone is correctly aligned if it is to heal properly and avoid future complications.
