Post-accident T-12 Spinal Burst Fracture with Surgical Fusion - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit shows a post-accident spinal fracture with surgical fusion in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows a mid-sagittal view of the spine, indicating an area of enlargement. The second illustration is an interpretation of an MRI film, showing a T12 thoracic burst fracture with 70% spinal cord compromise in a sagittal view of the thoracolumbar spine. The third image is an MRI film showing the burst fracture. The fourth illustration is the first step in the procedure, showing the creation of two incisions, one in the thoracic region and one in the right posterior iliac crest. The fifth illustration shows the placement of fixation rods and hooks into the thoracic spine to stabilize the T12 fracture. The sixth illustration shows the burring of the pedicles of T12 and the removal of the laminae of T11. The seventh illustration shows the placement of the bone graft to complete the fusion.
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury
case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We
downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard
copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been
happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left
shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.
The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for
our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"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]."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in
showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches
which control the sense of taste."

"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."
