Cervical Spine Injuries with Triple Level Anterior Discectomy and Fusion Surgery - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit begins with one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the cervical spine clearly revealing the disc protrusions at the C4-5 and C6-7 levels. This image is based specifically on the MRI.
Next, one posterior (back) view of the upper torso of a female figure with the skeletal anatomy of the spine and the muscular anatomy of the left shoulder shown transparently beneath the skin and the nerves of this region shown transparently beneath the muscles is included. Bright flashes of red are shown at C4-5 and C6-7 symbolizing the source of the pain and this red color is shown radiating across the neck and down into the shoulder. Also, a region of the musculature below the left scapula is shaded in blue to represent the paresthesia and weakness in this region.
Also, the key steps of the triple level anterior discectomy and fusion procedure is illustrated in graphic detail including the removal of the herniated disc material, the preparation of the disc spaces and the fixation of the vertebrae with the PEEK spacer and fixation hardware.
"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.
"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical
Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both
treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and
professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt
service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can
certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art
have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in
showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches
which control the sense of taste."
