Caption

Fractured kneecap. Coloured X-ray of a side-view of the leg of a patient with a fractured kneecap (centre right). The femur (thigh bone) is at top, the tibia (shinbone) is at bottom centre with the fibula to its left. The kneecap has broken into two pieces. The bones will be immobilised, either externally, using a cast, or internally, using metal pins, to allow the kneecap to heal. It is important that a bone is correctly aligned if it is to heal properly and avoid future complications.
