Shoulder Dystocia Using Vacuum Extractor - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit depicts a mid-line cut-away view of a normal vaginal delivery conducted with a vaccuum extractor resulting in shoulder dystocia,, or brachial plexus injury. The baby's shoulder is partially trapped beneath the mother's pubic symphysis (pubic bone). As more force is applied to extract the baby from the birth canal, the brachial plexus nerves are stretched and injured.
"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."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and
extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use
Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the
job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of
all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over
the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my
idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch
(and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!).
I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."
