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:
"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.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"The Doe Report's Do-It-Yourself Exhibits program enables easy customization of complex medical exhibits at a reasonable expense and in a timely manner. Practically speaking, custom medical exhibits are no longer an unthinkable luxury, but a routine necessity."
