2,600 year old orthopedic implant in the bones of an Egyptian priest,Usermontu.The screw Usermontu's surgeon implanted into his bones was over 9 inches in length(poor fellow!)It looks as if he lost the ability to bend the limb.Still,I have seen similar cases of permanently impaired mobility after "modern"orthopedic surgeries!
