Anterior C5-6 Discectomy and Interbody Fusion - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This series of medical illustrations depicts a cervical spine injury and resulting anterior C5-6 discectomy and interbody fusion surgery. The pre-operative condition includes C3-4 vertebral spondylosis and C5-6 central and left sided disc herniation with compromise of the C6 nerve root. An image of compression of the spinal cord is also featured. The surgical procedure begins with a transverse incision in the neck, exposing the cervical vertebrae. C5-6 disc material is removed to decompress the neural elements. The endplates and anterior lips of adjacent vertebral bodies are drilled away with a bone drill to expose subchondral bone. Fibular bone graft is positioned between the vertebrae for fusion.
"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
