Anastomotic Leak with Emergency Surgical Repair - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This exhibit begins with an anterior view of the abdomen describing the pre-operative condition. The perforation at the anastomosis site, bile leakage, abscess are illustrated and labeled. The exhibit depicts multiple steps of the surgery based on the operative report provided. These steps include reopening the abdominal incision, evacuation of pelvic abscess, extension of the incision superiorly and transection of the small bowel proximal to the anastomosis and the colon distal (21.5 cm of ileum and colon removed), anastomosis of the small bowel to the colon, and creation of a protective/loop ileostomy proximal to the new anastomosis.
"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in
showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches
which control the sense of taste."

"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!"

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"
