Project Description

This surgical illustration layout was made to accompany an article in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. This paper described the surgical procedures involved in 2 different instances of phimosis (inability to extrude the penis) in male kittens. 7 Figures were conceived to give an overview of the problems as well as the distinct steps involved in treatments. Anatomy was shown in sagittal cross-section and ventral surface views to provide clarity of the involved structures and the final outcome of treatments proposed in the article.
