Breakdown of Dural Repair Site - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit features illustrations of a lumbar disc herniation and steps from the surgical procedure to correct the problem that resulted in a dural tear. The first illustration provides a side cut away view of the spinal cord within a silhouetted figure. The area of injury in this case is shown boxed off from the rest of the anatomy. The second illustration shows an enlargement of the injured area. The L5-S1 disc is herniating and pressing in on the spinal elements. The third illustration depicts the midline incision made over the posterior figure's L5-S1 region. The fourth illustration shows the laminotomy performed at the L5-S1 region that results in a tear to the dura. The fifth illustration features the repair of the torn dura with a row of sutures. The sixth illustration highlights the removal of the herniated disc material as the surgical procedure continues. The final illustration shows the foraminotomy to relieve the aggravated nerve root. The image includes the row of sutures on the dural sac as they appeared at the end of the procedure.
"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!"
"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the
timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend
your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services.
Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical
Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled
[my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after
the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they
really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing
with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude
in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without
difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain
that this contributed to our successful result."
