Project Description

Exhibit panel created for use by the plaintiff in a medical malpractice insurance claim against the treating surgeon. The attorney requested an exhibit to depict the details of the laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and the anatomical details of erroneously placed sutures. This panel served as key demonstrative evidence to support the plaintiff’s medical experts’ opinions against the defendant gynecologist, who failed to recognize that sutures used to close the vaginal vault incorporated the entire thickness of the bladder wall, resulting in later formation of a vesicovaginal fistula.
