Knee Injury - Torn Meniscus with Arthroscopic Repair - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This set of medical illustrations depicts a knee injury with arthroscopic repair. The first drawing orients the viewer to the normal anatomy of the knee, including the femur, patella and tibia, and indicates the plane of section for the next image. The second drawing depicts the pre-operative condition, including a partial tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus, hypertrophic synovium, partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the right anterior horn of the medial meniscus. The next four drawings show the arthroscopic procedure. Image A shows the placement of arthroscopic instruments into the knee joint through separate stab incisions. Image B depicts the debridement of the anterior medial meniscus and posterior lateral meniscus back to stable margins. Image C shows the removal of a large amount of hypertrophic synovium from both the medial and lateral compartments of the knee. Image D depicts the debridement of the torn portion of the anterior cruciate ligament.
"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and
timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to
juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our
firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the
past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

"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!"

"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."
