Full Thickness Rotator Cuff Tear with Surgical Repairs - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit begins with an anterior view of the right shoulder. The skin is transparent revealing the underlying skeletal and muscular anatomy which shows a large retracted tear of the rotator cuff. Next, the following steps of the open rotator cuff repair procedure is included: a strap type incision is made into the right shoulder, an acromioplasty is performed using an osteotome and smoothing the undersurface of the acromion with a rongeur, the upper edge of the greater tuberosity is smoothed and a shallow trough for the rotator cuff repair is created and finally, three suture anchors are then placed in the humeral head within the trough completing the repair.
"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3
million dollar verdict last Friday."

"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."

"Thank you for the wonderful illustrations. The case resulted in a defense verdict last Friday. I know [our medical expert witness] presented some challenges for you and I appreciate how you were able to work with him."

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your
illustration to the defendants, with a copy to
the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million
dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.
I appreciate your help!"
