Breakdown of Dural Repair Site - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit features illustrations comparing the anatomy of a patient's dura following an initial surgery and at the beginning of a second procedure. The first illustration provides a posterior view of the spinal cord from L5 to S1. A portion of the dural layer surrounding the spinal cord and nerves is show repaired with sutures. The second illustration features a superior cross section of the first image. This illustration highlights the entrapment of the rootlets within the dural sac. The third illustration depicts a posterior view of the spinal cord from L5 to S1 and the condition found at the opening of the second operative procedure. The sutured section of the dural layer is shown breaking down and leaking spinal fluid. The rootlets are also shown herniating through the rents. The final illustration features a superior cross section of the third image. This illustration highlights the dural breakdown and subsequent injury to the rootlets.
"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the
job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of
all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over
the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my
idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch
(and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!).
I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"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."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."
