|L4-5, L5-S1 Spinal Injuries with Subsequent Surgical Fusions - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
|This stock medical exhibit depicts L4-5 and L5-S1 spinal injuries with subsequent surgical fusions in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows the pre-operative condition in a mid-sagittal view of the lumbo-sacral spine. In it, disc herniations are seen at L4-5 and L5-S1, causing compression of nerve roots. The second illustration shows the pre-operative condition in a superior view of the herniated disc causing compression of the nerve root. The third illustration shows the beginning of the discectomy procedure: anterior incisions are made, exposing the interspaces and the iliac crest. Cancellous bone grafts are harvested from the left iliac crest. The fourth illustration depicts a sagittal view of the lumbo-sacral spine, showing the removal of the L4-5 and L5-S1 herniated discs. The fifth illustration shows an anterior view of the lumbar spine, showing the filling of BAK cages with bone grafts and insertion of the cages into the interspaces for fusion. The sixth illustration depicts a sagittal view of the post-operative condition of the fusion, showing the BAK cages and cancellous bone grafts in place.|
|What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
|"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

|"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury
case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We
downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard
copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been
happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left
shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.
The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for
our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

|"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning
of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the
defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It
is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

|"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical
Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both
treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and
professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt
service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can
certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art
have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."
