Left Tibial Plateau Fracture with Surgical Fixation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit displays a left tibial plateau fracture with surgical fixation in a series of illustrations. The first two images include an x-ray and an illustration of the pre-operative condition, showing a Type V-IV left tibial plateau fracture. The third illustration depicts the first step of the procedure, in which a standard anterior approach (incision) is made to the knee. The fourth illustation shows the reduction of the fracture with two cannulated screws. The fifth illustration shows the filling of the defect in the tibia with bone allograft. The sixth illustration shows the securing of the buttress plate to the lateral aspect of the tibia for final fixation. The seventh image is an x-ray of the post-operative condition, including all the hardware in place in the tibia.
"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled
[my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after
the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they
really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing
with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude
in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without
difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain
that this contributed to our successful result."

"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.
"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."
