Bilateral Lower Extremity Fractures with Initial Surgical Repairs - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit begins with one anterior view of the bilateral lower legs and feet with the skeletal anatomy shown transparently beneath the skin. This image illustrates the post-accident conditions including the open wound of the left lower leg, the underlying tibia and fibula fractures, the left 2nd metatarsal fracture, the right great toe proximal phalanx fracture and the right 2nd toe proximal interphalangeal joint dislocation. These images will be based specifically on the post-accident x-rays if these films can be provided.
Also, the key steps of the surgical procedure illustrates step by step. These images include the realignment of the various fracture sites, the irrigation and debridement of the left lower leg wound, the placement of the antibiotic beads into the tibial fracture site and the assembly of the external fixation device.

Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report
represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for
health-care and legal professionals.
Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent
either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a
thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts
that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and
direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of
training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross
examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these
illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key
As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate
my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an
invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to
