Left Tarsal Tunnel Release with Plantar Nerve Neurectomy - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit portrays a left tarsal tunnel release with plantar nerve neurectomy in a series of illustrations. The first two illustrations show the pre-operative condition, which includes a bulbous nerve stump (neuroma) in the foot and the distal portion of a transected accessory nerve. The third illustration shows the first step of the procedure, in which a posteromedial incision is made in the foot. The retinaculum is elevated off the tibial nerve and cut with a scalpel. The fourth illustration shows the exposure of the neuroma along the plantar nerve. A rent is created in the belly of the abductor muscle. The nerve stump is buried and sutured into the muscle. The fifth illustration shows the post-operative condition, including the cut retinaculum, the rebounded tibial nerve, the distal portion of the transected accessory nerve and the buried nerve stump sutured into the abductor muscle.
"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]."

"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."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and
extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use
Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"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."
