Caption: Pinned ankle fracture. Coloured X-ray of the ankle bones of a patient with a pinned ankle fracture. The malleolus (bony projection at the end of a bone) of the fibula (right) has been fractured and then pinned back together. The larger bone to the left is the tibia, or shin bone. The fibula is the thinner of the two lower leg bones, and has had a plate, as well as screws, used to hold it together. The pins and plates hold the bone fragments in position while they heal.
