|Brachial Plexus Birth Injury - Right Shoulder Dystocia (Erb's Palsy) - Medical Animation
|This 3D medical animation begins by showing a vaginal delivery from a cut-away view of the mother's pelvis. The contractions of the uterus push the baby through the birth canal. As the forceful uterine contractions continue, we see the infant's shoulder being trapped beneath the mother's pelvic bone (pubic symphysis) causing the nerves of the brachial plexus (highlighted for visibility) to be stretched and injured. This action can result in a type of arm paralysis (paralyzed arm) called Erb's palsy.rnrnThis animation may be purchased as is, or customized to fit your specific needs. The price for modifying this stock animation is considerably less than purchasing a custom animation, and the consultation for doing so is free.
|What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
|"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is
whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal
Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and
persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to
understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

|"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few
milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report
represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for
health-care and legal professionals.
Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent
either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a
thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts
that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and
direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of
training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross
examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these
illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key
As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate
my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an
invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to
