Lumbar Spine Injuries with Double Level Anterior Discectomy and Fusion - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical illustration features with one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the lumbar spine illustrating the pre-operative condition. This image reveals the disc injuries at L4-5 and L5-S1.
Next, two to three steps of the L4-5 and L5-S1 anterior interbody fusion procedure illustrates in graphic detail based on the operative dictation from the procedure. Each illustration provides the viewer with the surgeon's perspective of the operation at key steps during the procedure. Actual incision sites, instrumentation and operative techniques are recreated with attention to precise details from the particular procedure and surgeon. Finally, one lateral skeletal view of the spine illustrates the post-operative condition with the fusion hardware in place. An inset view of one of the actual post-operative x-rays is included.
