Knee Injury - Torn Meniscus with Arthroscopic Repair - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This set of medical illustrations depicts a knee injury with arthroscopic repair. The first drawing orients the viewer to the normal anatomy of the knee, including the femur, patella and tibia, and indicates the plane of section for the next image. The second drawing depicts the pre-operative condition, including a partial tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus, hypertrophic synovium, partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the right anterior horn of the medial meniscus. The next four drawings show the arthroscopic procedure. Image A shows the placement of arthroscopic instruments into the knee joint through separate stab incisions. Image B depicts the debridement of the anterior medial meniscus and posterior lateral meniscus back to stable margins. Image C shows the removal of a large amount of hypertrophic synovium from both the medial and lateral compartments of the knee. Image D depicts the debridement of the torn portion of the anterior cruciate ligament.
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of
illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know
that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.
Bernhardt & Rothermel
"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."
Todd J. Kenyon
Attorney at Law
"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury
Aaron R. Larson, Esq. President ExpertLaw.com
"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."
