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:
"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.
Bridgeport, CT

"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."

Andrew G. Slutkin
Snyder Slutkin & Kopec
Baltimore, MD
"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."

Todd J. Kenyon
Attorney at Law
Minneapolis, MN

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."
