Intra-operative Injury to the Abdominal Aorta - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit describes an intra-operative injury to the abdominal aorta. It begins with a view of a male patient lying on his side in the operating room. The remaining images show the operative (lateral) view of the abdomen, with the kidneys, spine, and aorta visible beneath the skin. In the first of these images, a trocar is shown piercing the aorta. The second view shows the trocar in position and the aortic tear. The third view shows the abdomen insufflated, and the resulting pressure keeps the blood in the retroperitoneal space. The final image hows the abdominal pressure released with an abdominal incision, allowing the blood to begin to fill the abdomen.

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could
not be done otherwise.
In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of
injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's
anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before
and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is
unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.
Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp
medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and
used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly
impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.
Medical Legal Art creates medical demonstrative evidence (medical
illustrations, drawings, pictures, graphics, charts, medical animations,
anatomical models, and interactive presentations) for use during legal
proceedings, including research, demand letters, client conferences,
depositions, arbitrations, mediations, settlement conferences, mock jury
trials and for use in the courtroom. We do not provide legal or medical
advice. If you have legal questions, you should find a lawyer with whom you
can discuss your case issues. If you have medical questions, you should seek the advice of a healthcare provider.
