Tearing of the Vertebral Artery Wall and Resulting Stroke - Medical Animation
This comprehensive legal animation, features six (6) main scenes of information, describing the following arterial wall dissection and clotting progression:

Scene 1. Normal Vertebral Blood Flow.
This portion of the animation opens with a the 3/4 standing view of the female figure and enlargement showing normal blood flow through the right vertebral artery.
Scene 2. Discectomy. This next portion of the animation reveals a figure lying supine with Gardner Well's tongs and cervical spine in traction. As the chin is lifted and the head titled backwards for surgery, the initial arterial dissection footage occurs with a small tear of the lining within the lumen.
Scene 3. Clot Forms at Dissection Site. The dissection site expands and begins to form a clot.
Scene 4. Clots Begin to break Off. At the early dissection size- two (2) clots are shown breaking off and traveling into the blood flow. The camera follows those clots, and zoom into the base of the brainstem where the clots (represented as glowing lights) are seen lodging near the origination of the right side CNV and CNVI. Those cranial nerves, and the structures of the eyes will dissolve into view and be labeled for identification.
As CNV and CNVI are identified, the once regular nerve impulses are seen being interrupted and broken in appearance- as they travel out to the eyes and right side of the mouth. The nerve impulses become disrupted in both regularity, and color signifying symptoms and temporary injury to both those anatomical areas.
Scene 5. Symptoms subside. The nerve impulses return back to their more normal pattern and color to allow for discussion that the symptoms subsided after their original onset.
Scene 6. Patient Discharged, Clots Continue to Break Off. The detailed enlargement of the blood flow, now shows the dissection increasing from 50% to 75% as additional small clots are seen being thrown off, this process continues to worsen for a few moments - throwing additional clots, then fades to black- ending the animation.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."
