Lumbar Disc Herniation with Surgical Discectomy and Fusion - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit begins with one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the lumbar spine illustrating the pre-operative condition. This image reveals the disc herniation at L3-4 based on the pre-operative MRI scan. Next, the key steps of the hemilaminectomy, discectomy and fusion procedure are illustrated in graphic detail. Finally, one lateral skeletal view of the lumbar spine is included to illustrate the post-operative condition with the fusion grafts and hardware in place.
