External splint for multiple fracture.

Adjustable to provide traction and enable bone lengthening if necessary to make up for that which was removed.

Too easy again! #1 and #2 are correct.

Yes, it is an Ilizarov frame. I like it because it solves a difficult problem cheaply (the prototypes were made up from bicycle parts).

Come to think of it, neither have I, but I can't imagine what else it would serve.

Just looks bloody uncomfortable to me!

It could also be one of two legs being lengthened. It's pretty sick.. and not the good sick.

That's because (1)you ate too much BBQ last night at Ray's, and (2) you were already looking ahead to catfish fry Wednesdays at Al's, and (3) you are already busy doing too many Pearl curls.

At first glance it looked like a tree branch to me. Limb straightening works for that too!

Look carefully again... It is a leg with 4 small toes and a parallel big toe.

OH Kreicky! I thought that was the doctor's eviel hand holding down the horse (patient). OK, it is not a horse. So this is an example of the military's new tactical truth extraction methodology, brought to you by none other than the illustrious US DIA.

At a stretch I guess it is a splint for surgeons who want to keep afoot with bone repairs.

.....painful yes!...but wait till it gets better and starts itching...

At least it is not for surgeons who want to keep a breast with cone repairs. !!!

Other than being an adjustable splint for a racehorse with a broken leg, I hear the US Army will replace waterboarding with this for use in the field by untrained personnel of ISIS (Dash). More power to them.

This is what happens when you give a doctor an erector set.

Yes, these do hurt. I have one on my head right now. Bought it off the internet, said it would help me to grow a "super-brain". Hardest part was drilling the holes while looking in a mirror........

I have one question for you. If you were drilling a hole (into yourself) while looking in a mirror, Do you need to use a left hand drill bit or use the drill in reverse, or both?

Be careful, if you cannot see the drilling hand in the mirror, you are drilling right hand with the right hand.

Please!! Give me credit here.....(already I can tell the device is working!) I used a left hand drill bit, so that when viewed in the mirror, it is a right hand bit! Made all the difference in the world! And....I found that with a reversible drill, I could reverse the bit direction. Gets painful drilling after the first 5 minutes; then, I reversed the direction and it went real fast. So, I repeated the forward/reverse procedure 6 times. Glad for the reverse button on the drill!
