Attempted PEG Tube Removal - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit begins with a silhouette view of the upper body of an elderly male figure from the head down to the torso. Within this silhouette, we show an anterior cut-away view of the upper digestive system including the oral passage, esophagus, stomach and duodenum. An endoscope is in place through the mouth, down the esophagus and into the stomach, and the PEG tube in place through the stomach and out the abdominal wall. Three surgical steps depict the initial step with a snare from the endoscope grasping the bumper of the PEG tube. Next step with the PEG tube cut as the external portion is removed. Final step with the attempted removal of the bumper via the endoscope but showing that the distal esophagus is too narrow and that the bumper cannot pass.
"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial
resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic
injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the
Salt Lake City, UT
"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning
of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the
defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It
is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."
Attorney at Law
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's
injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a
good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you
Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the
conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to
prevent bed sores..."

"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."
