Caption: Pinned foot bones after surgery. Lateral (side view) X-ray showing pins (white) inserted into the bones of a patient's foot. Pins have been inserted in to the heel bone (calcaneus) , the tarsals and metatarsals, and the phalanges of the big toe. This type of surgery is done to correct deformities such as cavus foot, where the arch of the foot is too high. Pins and implants are also used in surgery to correct bunions and conditions such as hammer toe. For a foot like this being X-rayed during surgery, see image C014/7789. For an image showing insertion of a pin, see C014/7785.
