Normal Heart vs. Heart with Mitral Valve Insufficiency - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit features four (4) anterior cut-away views of the heart revealing the various chambers and valves within the heart.
The first two images illustrates normal anatomy. The first image shows the mitral valve open with a large arrow symbolizing blood flow through the valve from the left atrium down into the left ventricle. The second image shows the mitral valve completely closed with a large arrow symbolizing blood flow out of the left ventricle up through the aortic valve into the ascending aorta.

The second set of images illustrates a deformity. The first image shows the mitral valve open with proper blood flow through the valve down into the ventricle, but the posterior leaflet of the valve is deformed. The final image shows the deformity of posterior leaflet prevents the complete closure of the valve so that when the ventricle contracts blood flows not only up into the ascending aorta but that a significant portion of the blood regurgitates back through the defective mitral valve into the left atrium. This illustration of the disruption of normal blood flow reveals this condition as serious and potentially fatal.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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."

"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 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."

"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."
