Shoulder Dystocia Birth Injury - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit pictures a mid-line cut-away view of a normal vaginal delivery with a classic depiction of the birthing injury shoulder dystocia, with subsequent stretching and injury of the baby\'s brachial plexus. The baby\'s shoulder is partially trapped beneath the mother\'s pubic symphysis (pubic bone). As the deliverer exerts more pressure to extract the baby, the brachial plexus nerves stretch and are injured.

"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.
