Post-accident Ankle Fractures with Surgical Fixation - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit shows post-accident ankle fractures with surgical fixation in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows the area of injury in a lateral view of the ankle. The second illustration shows a compound fracture dislocation of the right ankle, including a distal fibular fragment rotated 90 degrees, a fracture fragment of the medial malleolus and dislocation of the foot below the ankle in an anterior view of the bones of the foot. The third illustration shows the post-accident injuries in an anterior view of the skin and bones of the ankle, including an open wound on the lateral right ankle with exposed bone and dislocation of the foot below the ankle. The fourth illustration shows the first step in the debridement of the wound with open reduction and internal fixation of ankle fractures. It shows the realignment of the bones and the creation of an incision into the medial ankle, exposing the fracture. The fifth illustration shows the placement of two screws in the tibia to fixate the tibial fracture. The sixth illustration shows the exposure of the lateral fracture site and the fixation of the fracture with two pins using a pin driver. The seventh illustration shows the post-operative appearance in an anterior view of the bones of the ankle, in which the pins and screws used to fixate the fractures are seen in position.
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of
illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know
that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning
of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the
defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It
is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."
Attorney at Law
"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.

"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."
