Project Description

The intended purpose this set of illustrations was to demonstrate the normal anatomical structures of the hip and how they relate to the classification of hip fractures, and to show selected treatments for hip fractures. Color was used in both figures to focus the reader on the area of most importance. A light simple color palette was used so that the vasculature and classification regions, and fixation screws and replacements, respectively, could be easily interpreted.
