Caption

X-ray of the human hip joint, showing a stainless steel dynamic hip screw (white) which has been inserted to immobilise a fracture. This treatment is commonly used in cases where the fracture is sited in the neck of the femur, the narrow piece of bone joining the bone shaft to the hip joint. The neck of the femur is a point of structural weakness and a common fracture site, especially in the elderly. The broken bone ends are often considerably displaced in such fractures, severe pain is experienced in the hip & groin, and no weight can be put on the leg. The screw is fastened to the bone ends while the patient is under general anaesthesia.
