Caption

Hip replacement. X-ray of the leg of a 66-year-old man with a total hip joint replacement (white). The prosthesis consists of a ball and shaft attached to the top of the femur (thigh bone, lower left), and a socket (centre, of which its metal ring is seen), which is fitted into the pelvis. The prosthesis replaced an osteoarthritic hip joint in which the friction-reducing cartilage had been worn away.
