Left Shoulder Impingement Syndrome wih Arthroscopic Surgery - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This set of medical illustrations depicts left shoulder impingement syndrome with arthroscopic surgery. The first drawing is an orientation to shoulder anatomy. The second image is an enlargement of the first, depicting the pre-operative injuries, including a distal clavicle bone spur, acromioclavicular impingement syndrome, down sloping acromion process and impinged supraspinatus muscle tendon. The next image depicts the first two steps of the subacromial decompression surgery, including the insertion of the arthroscopic instruments into the shoulder joint, and the performance of an acromioplasty using a high speed bur to remove the post-traumatic bone spurs and relieve impingement. The last image shows the next two steps in the procedure, including the removal of the distal portion of the clavicle with a high speed bur and the smoothing of the frayed rotator cuff with a shaver.
"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."
Joseph M. Prodor Trial Lawyer White Rock, British Columbia
"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."

"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."

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and
timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to
juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our
firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the
past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."
