Fractured arm surgery. Image 1 of 10. Surgeon removing a pin from a patient's humerus (arm bone). The pin was originally inserted to stabilise the bone and allow it to heal in the correct position after being fractured in a motorcycle accident. However, the ends of the fracture did not reunite properly, so the pin is being removed along with the ends of the fracture, which will be replaced by a bone graft from the patient's pelvis.
