Traumatic Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit depicts the mechanism of reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and an attempt at breaking the cycle of pain. Multiple images illustrate how an injury to the right foot initiates a pain impulse which is carried from the sensory nerves to the central nervous system. The pain impulse in turn, triggers an impulse in the sympathetic nervous system which returns to the original area of injury. The sympathetic impulse triggers an inflammatory response, causing the vessels to dilate. This leads to swelling and increased pain. The pain triggers another impulse, establishing a continuous cycle of pain and swelling. An additional image shows how an anesthetic is injected around the lumbar sympathetic chain in an attempt to break the cycle of pain.
"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."
James D. Horwitz Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C. Bridgeport, CT
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."
Joseph M. Prodor Trial Lawyer White Rock, British Columbia
"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and
I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical
illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require
medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."
