Ruptured Ectopic Pregnancy - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
Ruptured Ectopic (Tubal) Pregnancy. Dramatic depiction of embryo rupturing through the fallopian (uterine) tube, resulting in embryonic death and compromising the health of the mother.
Among 10,685 women studied, the risk of ectopic pregnancy within 10 years after sterilization was about 7 per 1,000 procedures. The likelihood of an ectopic pregnancy varied according to the method of sterilization and the age at which the women underwent the sterilization procedures.

• Ectopic pregnancy, also known as a tubal pregnancy, is a potentially life-threatening form of pregnancy in which implantation of the fertilized egg occurs outside the uterus.
 
• Among 10,685 women studied, the risk of ectopic pregnancy within 10 years after sterilization was about 7 per 1,000 procedures.
 

• These findings are reported in "The Risk of Ectopic Pregnancy After Tubal Sterilization" by Herbert Peterson, Zhisen Xia, Joyce Hughes, Lynne Wilcox, Lisa Tylor, and James Trussell for the U.S. Collaborative Review of Sterilization Working Group in the March 13, 1997 issue (336:762-767) of The New England Journal of Medicine.
 
• The purpose of this 14-year study, which was supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development at the National Institutes of Health, was to assess the risk of ectopic pregnancy in women who have undergone tubal sterilization.
 
• Ectopic pregnancy may occur long after sterilization. Ectopic pregnancy after tubal sterilization is not rare, particularly among women sterilized before age 30.
   
• Those who provide care to women of childbearing age should not assume that a history of tubal sterilization rules out the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy in a woman who has symptoms or signs of pregnancy, especially ectopic pregnancy.
   
• The study also found that the likelihood of an ectopic pregnancy varied according to the method of sterilization and the age at which the women underwent the sterilization procedure. Women who were under age 30 at the time of the procedure were twice as likely to have a subsequent ectopic pregnancy as older women. Further, the researchers found that ectopic pregnancy may occur many years after tubal sterilization.
 
• Tubal sterilization is an increasingly common method of contraception in the United States, and even though pregnancy after sterilization is uncommon, it can occur, and it may be ectopic.
 
• Women who think that they might be pregnant after sterilization should check with their health care providers, even if the sterilization was performed many years earlier.
 
• Approximately 100,000 ectopic pregnancies occur each year, and relatively few are caused by sterilization. Often the actual cause is unknown, but many cases result from tubal damage incurred from sexually transmitted infections. Ectopic pregnancies are the leading cause of pregnancy-related deaths in the first trimester and account for 9% of all pregnancy-related deaths in this country.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."

"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.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"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. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."
