Right Ankle Injuries with Arthroscopic Surgery - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit illustrates two surgeries completed on the right ankle, one closed and one open.rnrnThe top half of the exhibit illustrates the closed procedure. This includes two pre-operative films showcasing the subcentral cysts and marrow edema in the talus, as well as the osteochondral fragment overlapping the talus and calcaneus junction. The steps shown of this procedure include the insertion of arthroscopic instruments, the debridement of scar tissue and synovitis from the ankle joint, and the removal of loose bodies and tibial exostosis, and microfracturing of the lateral talar dome.rnrnThe bottom half of the exhibit illustrates the open procedure. This also includes three images, the first illustrating the open incision over the right ankle exposing the damaged calcaneofibular ligament and anterior talofibular ligament. The next two steps show the stitching of the damaged ligaments and the flap of tissue stitched over them to secure the ligaments in place.
"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did
with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both
detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them
and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the
lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to
say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.
The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have
done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with
your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical
Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my
last minute revisions."

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could
not be done otherwise.
In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of
injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's
anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before
and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is
unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.
Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp
medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and
used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly
impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.
"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."
