Septic Surgical Wound Following Abdominal Surgery - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit depicts the progression of a post-operative septic surgical wound following abdominal surgery. The first illustration pictures the gross appearance of the wound on the female abdomen, with reactive, brown and murky infection drainage. The second illustration displays an enlarged cut-away view of the skin with the appearance of the sutured wound, progressing to infection and dehiscence, or splitting open of the sutures. It includes labels for sutures, skin, fat, fat fascia, muscle, peritoneum and the abdominal cavity. The third illustration pictures the infected material in the subcutaneous space, extending through the disrupted fascia into the abdominal cavity.
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your
illustration to the defendants, with a copy to
the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million
dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.
I appreciate your help!"

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."
