L4-5, L5-6, L6-S1 Spinal Stenosis with Lumbar Fusion Procedure - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts an L4-5, L5-6, and L6-S1 spinal stenosis with lumbar fusion procedure. The first illustration shows a lateral view of the skull and a sagittal view of the spine and spinal cord. The second illustration depicts an enlarged sagittal view of the lumbar spine, showing the pre-operative condition. It portrays a previous discectomy site as well as spinal stenosis and instability at the L4-5, L5-L6 and L6-S1 levels.

The third illustration begins the lumbar fusion procedure. In it, an incision is made into the lower back of a caucasian figure to expose the vertebrae from L4-S1. The fourth illustration portrays decompression laminectomies from L4-5 down to the L5-S1 level. The fifth illustration shows the decorticating of the lateral gutters at L5, L6 and S1. Bone graft is then placed over the decorticated areas. The sixth illustration shows the insertion of pedicle screws and the placement of fusion plates from L5-S1.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"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."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
