Knee Injury - Torn Meniscus with Arthroscopic Repair - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This set of medical illustrations depicts a knee injury with arthroscopic repair. The first drawing orients the viewer to the normal anatomy of the knee, including the femur, patella and tibia, and indicates the plane of section for the next image. The second drawing depicts the pre-operative condition, including a partial tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus, hypertrophic synovium, partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the right anterior horn of the medial meniscus. The next four drawings show the arthroscopic procedure. Image A shows the placement of arthroscopic instruments into the knee joint through separate stab incisions. Image B depicts the debridement of the anterior medial meniscus and posterior lateral meniscus back to stable margins. Image C shows the removal of a large amount of hypertrophic synovium from both the medial and lateral compartments of the knee. Image D depicts the debridement of the torn portion of the anterior cruciate ligament.
"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have
used their services for three years and always found their professionalism,
quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations.

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical
demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical
injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our
client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed
the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.
We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of
the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative
evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have
afforded to have been without."
