L4-5 Disc Herniation with Discectomy - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit shows an L4-5 disc herniation with discectomy. The first illustration shows the preoperative condition of the lumbar spine. In it, the L4-5 herniated disc is seen impinging on the cauda equina of the spinal cord. Other normal structures labeled and illustrated include the dura mater, the fourth lumbar vertebra and the fifth lumbar vertebra. The second illustration shows a superior view of the herniated disc. In this illustration, the impinged spinal nerve and the herniated disc are depicted. The third illustration shows a posterior view of the lower back of a caucasian female. In it, the location of a vertical linear incision over the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae is indicated.

The fourth illustration shows the first step of the procedure. In it, the procedure is initiated on the right side. A small amount of the inferior portion of L4 is drilled off. The fifth illustration shows the second step of the procedure. In it, the nerve root is retracted medially while the herniated disc is removed from the right side.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.

"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."

"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."

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."
