Jenny's Wrist X-Rays
In November, 2005, Jenny broke her left wrist in a motorcycle accident.
She's fine now (July 2006) but it was a pretty bad break.
Jenny's father is a retired orthopedic surgeon and we kept him apprised
of her progress by sending him pictures of her X-ray and fluoroscope images
as her treatment progressed. He told us repeatedly that her surgeon, Dr.
Daniel Martin, had done an excellent job, that her break was a bad one and
the degree of success of the surgery was remarkable.
There are four pages in this section:
- Initial x-rays, before any surgery
Includes sketches of the pins and "tension loop" that Dr. Martin
- Post-operative, with seven pins
holding her bones together
Includes Dr. Martin's biography
- Christmas 2005, after
getting all but three pins out
Includes fluoroscope pictures of Jenny's hitherto-undiagnosed
"radial head fracture." That is, she had also broken her right arm
near the elbow but nobody noticed.
- Final images after all pins were
