Dem bones!

We had a bone fracture repair lab yesterday where we placed pins and cerclage wire to stabilize oblique fractures on plastic femurs and tibias. My partners and I took a lot of photos, which must've looked funny to my other classmates. But I thought it was really cool.

Me placing an intramedullary pin through the long axis of the bone.

A screw pin being placed across the oblique fracture.

Cerclage wire being fitted over the screw pin and tightened to hold the fracture closed.
