Placement of Intraocular Lens with Blockage of Fluid Flow Within the Eye - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit features two sets of images comparing normal anatomy with the post-operative condition following the placement of the STAAR Sugical Implantable Collamer Lens. Each set of images consists of a sagittal (side cut-away) view of the eye and a anterior view of the eye. Normal Anatomy. The sagittal image includes a series of small blue arrows representing the circulation of aqueous fluid from the posterior chamber, between the lens and iris, out through the pupil and out through the trabecular network at the angle of the cornea. Another set of small red arrows are shown in a circular pattern pointing outward from the center of the posterior chamber representing normal intraocular pressure. The anterior view shows a completely normal eye. Post-operative Condition. The sagittal image shows the intraocular lens in place between the normal lens and the iris causing a complete blockage of the pupil. little blue arrows show that aqueous flow is blocked and that fluid cannot pass beyond the blocked pupil into the anterior chamber. The series of red arrows representing intraocular pressure is much bigger symbolizing the resulting increase in pressure. In the anterior view, the iris is semitransparent focusing on the outline of this rectangular intraocular lens and show that it completely blocks the pupil.
"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could
not be done otherwise.
In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of
injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's
anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before
and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is
unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.
Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp
medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and
used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly
impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.
"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."

"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."

"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."
