Left Lower Leg Fractures with Surgical Fixation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit portrays left lower leg fractures with surgical fixation in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows the pre-operative condition, which includes a closed transcervical fracture in the neck of the femur, a Grade II open segmental fracture of the femoral shaft and a closed fracture of the patella. The second illustration depicts the first step of the procedure, in which an incision is made along the lateral hip. A cannulated screw is placed to reduce the neck fracture. This is followed by the placement of a side plate and hip screw and cerclage wires. The third illustration shows the flexion of the femur and the creation of a parapatellar incision. A femoral retrograde nail is placed across the fracture site in the femoral shaft. The fourth illustration shows the reconstruction of the contour of the patella with longitudinal wires and figure-of-eight cerclage wire. The fifth illustration shows the post-operative condition with all of the hardware in place in the femur and patella.
"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what
happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where
people are used to getting information visually, through television and
other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.
I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.
Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled
[my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after
the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they
really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing
with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude
in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without
difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain
that this contributed to our successful result."

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery
bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video
deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In
addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection
fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could
use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier,
and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The
Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day.
The Doe Report saved me time and money."
