Project Description

This trial exhibit depicts the crushing injury and multiple repair surgeries undergone by the patient in a layout that is clear to the lay audience of the jury. A superomedial view is consistent throughout the exhibit. Medical techniques and instrumentation are incorporated to deliver a graphic and dramatic presentation of the surgeries. The initial injury illustrates the degloving laceration and fractures in the first and second proximal phalanges. Four steps were chosen to describe the three surgeries: soft tissue excision, placement of a Kirschner wire, amputation of the necrotic toe, and removal of necrotic tissue and bone. Jury members will be able to better understand and visualize the patient’s injury and the subsequent steps taken by the surgical team after viewing this exhibit.
