Fractured elbow. X-ray of the arm of a patient with a fractured elbow. The elbow articulates the lower and upper arm. The bone will be immobilised, either externally, using a cast, or internally, using metal pins, to allow it to heal. It is important that a bone is correctly aligned if it is to heal properly and avoid future complications.
