Abdominal Compartment Syndrome with Surgical Laparotomy and Eviseration - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit begins with one anterior cut-away view of the abdomen. The cut-away view of the abdominal wall shows severe swelling of the soft tissues. Multiple arrows point inward representing the massive increase of intra-abdominal pressure caused by this swelling and by the fluid in the abdomen. Text describes how the traumatized abdominal musculature is causing severe compression of the abdominal organs.
Also, the dramatic surgical procedure to decompress the abdomen is illustrated. These images include the creation of the large abdominal incision allowing the intestines to protrude out of the body through the incision, and the application of the large bag with staples to allow the bowels to remain herniated out of the abdomen following the procedure.
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your
illustration to the defendants, with a copy to
the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million
dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.
I appreciate your help!"

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's
injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a
good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you
Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the
conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to
prevent bed sores..."
