Traumatic Rupture of the Thoracic Aorta with Surgical Repair - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit portrays a traumatic rupture of the thoracic aorta with surgical repair. The first two illustrations show the post-accident condition, including a large mediastinal hematoma and traumatic transection of the descending thoracic aorta. The third illustration shows the first step of the procedure in which a left postero-lateral thoracotomy incision is made to access the transected aorta. The fourth illustration shows the isolation and clamping of the transected aorta and the evacuation of the hematoma. The fifth illustration shows the suturing of a graft across the defect in the aorta. The sixth illustration shows the removal of the clamps and the restoration of blood flow.
"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial
resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic
injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the

"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!"
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury
case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We
downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard
copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been
happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left
shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.
The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for
our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"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."
