|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."

|"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical
demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical
injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our
client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed
the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.
We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of
the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative
evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have
afforded to have been without."
