Project Description

These illustrations were created to demonstrate the severe spine trauma sustained by the plaintiff during an automobile crash. The intent of the illustrations is to show the extent of the large prevertebral hematoma along with the injuries to the interspinous ligament and to demonstrate the necessary surgical evacuation of the hematoma and postoperative drain placement. Photographs, MRIs, radiology reports, and operative notes were used to ensure accurate depictions of the injuries and surgical repair.
