    Hola,
    en una película el piloto de F-15 tiene que escapar del avión durante el vuelo. Rompe piernas, manos etc. Los médicos describen como estaba:

    We cut off his flight suit and his equipment. The right uh, femur was actually all the way over the tib fib. This arm was stuck up over behind his head because his posterior dislocated, his shoulder here. And his left leg, was actually just an open fracture.

    ¿Cómo diríais la frase "femur was all the way over the tib fib"?

    Hola. "Tib" se refiere a la tibia y "fib" se refiere a la fíbula o peroné. Yo diría algo así: "El fémur derecho se encontraba realmente por encima de la tibia y del peroné".
