Bacterial Endocarditis with Damage to the Aortic Valve - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit demonstrates bacterial endocarditis from trauma with damage to the aortic valve. The upper two images present aortic valve function in a normal and undamaged heart. On the upper left, the valve is open, allowing blood flow from the left ventricle to the aorta. At the upper right, the valve is closed, preventing back flow of blood into the ventricle. The lower two images show what happens when the aortic valve is damaged. In the lower left image, a bacteria infection on the valve inhibits it from functioning properly. At the lower right, the defective aortic valve is not able to close properly, allowing blood to flow back into the ventricle.

malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the
other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9
million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in
helping us to successfully conclude these cases.
I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical
