Multiple Spinal Injuries with Surgical Repair of the Neck - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts widespread spinal injuries with a cervical discectomy and fusion procedure. The first illustration is a sagittal view demonstrating the cervical spine injuries: C5-6 posterior osteophytes with encroachment of the left neuroforamen and C6-7 posterior osteophytes with encroachment of the neuroforamina bilaterally and impingement of the spinal cord. Also shown is a sagittal view of the lumbar spine illustrating the multiple disc injuries found between L3-S1. There are four steps of the operative procedure illustrated, beginning with the incision exposing the cervical vertebrae. The next illustration shows the removal of disc material at at C5-6 and C6-7 and the removal of osteophytes. Then a second incision is made in the left hip to harvest bone graft. Finally the bone graft is placed in the disc spaces and a plate is secured with multiple screws completing the fusion.
"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and
I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical
illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require
medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."
Joseph M. Prodor Trial Lawyer White Rock, British Columbia
"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what
happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where
people are used to getting information visually, through television and
other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.
I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.
Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."
