Caption: Internal fixation of fractured femur. Labelled artworks and corresponding anterior (frontal view) X-rays of a fractured femur (thigh bone, left) and the femur after surgical implantation of a rod (right). This is a comminuted fracture, where the mid-shaft femoral break has produced fragments of bone (labelled at left). The surgery was an open reduction and internal fixation with femoral rodding. A rod, held in place by screws, has been implanted inside the bone across the fracture to hold the broken bone in place, allowing it to heal in the correct alignment. These artworks and X-rays are of the femur in a patient's left leg.
